Just where the old turnpike breaks
over the brow down into Black Hole
valley, la a queer field of rock, which
years ago was christened “ The Devil's
Turnip Patch.” The rooks, which are
of a reddish sandstone, have a striking
peculiarity of all standing on end, thus
forming a Jagged, irregular surface,
that won for it Its queer name from
the early settlers.
In bygone «lays, when the stages
wheeled their way up from Northum
berland to Williamsport, the four in

the turnip patch, and the strange gar
den of rocks was a constant source of
wonderment to the traveler. Added
to Its Interest as a natural curiosity is
a hidden stream of water somewhere
beneath the standing stones, the noisy
flowing o f which forms a romantic
song beneath one’s feet. Nobody
knows where the source of this stream
Is, nor can anybody find where It emp

The rock field covers an area of two
or three acres, with Its widest part to
the north, then narrowing down V

is lost in a fringe of stunted hemlocks

the cause of this mountain freak, but
the theory obtaining most credence Is
that It Is a legacy of the glacial age,
