Description:
Many legends have grown up telling how the Rock got its title from which the French King Highway and Bridge was named. A party of Indians under command of a French Officer came down the Connecticut River on a scouting expedition. They reached the Rock which was at the beginning of a dangerous rapid. Just at nightfall, nor caring to attempt the rapids at dark they camped on the west bank of the stream. The commanding officer was much impressed by the rock. It was the most conspicuous object he had encountered on the expedition, for at that time it stood probably eighteen feet out of water. Thinking it would be a good point of reference not only for him reports, but also for future explorations he decided to take formal possession of it in the name of the French King, Louis the XIV
