Long Description:
When the dust settled the Anderson's found a huge, coin-shaped rock where their master bedroom used to be.

The Rock in the House is run on the honor system. You park in the driveway, walk to the front door, and a series of handwritten notes tells you tales of the rock.

Suggested donation $1.00 to be put in a box before entering.

The house is not occupied, it is a tourist attraction, left the way it was on April 24, 1995. House is open to the elements where the boulder rolled into their bedroom. Possible creeping critters.
Price of Admission: 1.00 (listed in local currency)
