For reasons unknown to us, the activity of creating rock art
once flourished on the Lower Susquehanna.
More than 1,000 carved images (petroglyphs) of birds, animals, humans,
the tracks that they make, and other more abstract designs
have been documented on the rocks here.
The images offer us a precious glimpse of how these people
who came to the river many generations ago saw their world.
The sites on the Susquehanna were perhaps
the largest concentration of rock art in the northeast United States.
Those that remain are irreplaceable treasures that represent the great
significance of the lower Susquehanna's Native American Legacy.
