Fun Facts About the Commonwealth of Massachusetts


Named in 1983, Dighton Rock became the official state explorer rock. The 11 ft. boulder once rested on the shore of the Taunton River. The rock is covered with mysterious petroglyphs. You can visit the rock at its own museum adjacent to Dighton Rock State Park.


  1. I've heard about this rock as well as one off of (maybe) Martha's Vineyard. Perhaps the Vikings took a trip south (and most likely they might have gone south at least a ways) when they were in Newfoundland.. Stay cool! hugs-Erika

    1. I never heard of this rock. Maybe Teague and I will have to take a trip South

  2. A boulder with its own museum. Cool! I'm impressed that they took such steps to preserve it.

  3. I think it's ancient graffiti. LOL Maybe Native American version of 'Killroy was here!' 🤷

  4. I enjoy mysteries like this! I was going to ask if you had ever been there but then i saw you comment above.. ROAD TRIP!!!! lol Hugs! deb

  5. I've never heard of this rock before, but it sounds intriguing. Thanks for sharing, Valerie

  6. Interesting. Also interesting... it took a while for the comment page to load - is the beautiful background new?

    Oh, I haven´t been swimming in years, what a pity.
