Rock Eagle Effigy Mound

Rock Eagle

At the Rock Eagle Effigy Mound, rocks piled to a height of 10 feet form an effigy of a soaring bird 102 feet long from head to tail and 120 feet wide from wing tip to wing tip. The quartz rock effigy mound probably served as a ceremonial center for Indians in the surrounding area. A tower overlook is adjacent to the effigy, located 9 miles north of Eatonton on U.S. 441/129.
