Another view of Kerrville's "Split Rock" landmark

This is typical of many of the photographs of Kerrville's "Split Rock" landmark.  These usually show a grinning young person atop the rock.  It was quite a popular place to pose for photographs at the turn of the last century.  Hard to believe this image is over 100 years old.

Split Rock, near Kerrville, around 1907.  The young man is probably
Grady Grinstead, son of J. E. Grinstead, who I assume took the photo.

  1. Utilizing Google Earth, I viewed Split Rock Road in Kerrville and saw a number of objects that might be the split rock.

    However, Google Earth did not display a photo that was clear enough to actually identify the rock?

    Joe, does the rock still exist?

    If so, can you take a photo of it and display it on your blog?

    Thanks.
