Hanging Rock


One of our smaller preserves, Hanging Rock contains a portion of a Silurian coral reef formed when Indiana and much of the Midwest was covered by a warm, shallow sea. When the Wabash River undercut the rock, the top of the rock was left overhanging its base, 65 feet above the Wabash Valley - thus the preserve's name. Native Americans used Hanging Rock as both an overlook and a landmark.
