Long Description:
"A mysterious sandstone monolith of unknown origin stood just west of Monterey. According to local tradition, the structure resembled the shape of a large dog, which faced west over the edge of the Cumberland Plateau. Captain William Walton, builder of Walton Road, referred to the monolith as the "Standing Stone." What remains of the stone was removed to Monterey's Whitaker Park in 1895.
