Glen Rock, New Jersey - What is the Glen Rock?

If you ever find yourself driving through G len Rock, New Jersey you might pass by a gigantic boulder in the middle of the town.  I know when I first drove by I thought to myself, "what is that doing there!?"  In fact, the famous "Glen Rock" has quite a history.  The town itself was settled around this enormous rock when it was left by a retreating glacier.  The 570-ton boulder is called Pamackapuka, or Stone from Heaven, by the Delaware Indians.  This rock served as a base for Indian signal fires and later as a trail marker for colonists.  This is a very interesting piece of history right here in Bergen County - come check it out for yourself...you'll be amazed at it's size!
