The Story of Devil's Rock

While camping with my son and his best friend, it was story time around the campfire.

We were camping at Devil’s Rock, in the Pennsylvania Mountains. My son asked why it’s called Devil’s Rock.

“It is called Devil’s Rock because of an incident that happened in 1952. On December 9th, Bob Devilin went hunting in the woods with two friends. The three spread out, to cover different areas.

At sundown, they were all going to meet at Devil’s rock, but Bob never showed up. The two friends waited for a while, and then began a search along the hunting area.

After looking for several hours, the two returned home and called the police. The police began a search for him in the morning, as did friends of Bob who had volunteered. After three days of searching the police decided to call off the search at sunset.

As everyone was heading down the mountain, an eerie scream was heard. They looked up, and could see the outline against the moonlight, of someone standing on Devil’s Rock.

The police grabbed flashlights, and hurried to the top of the rock. On the flat of the rock, a devil’s head was carved into the rock, and painted with red paint.

The search continued for two more days, but no one was found. Bob Devilin was never seen or heard of again, but at sun down, on December 9th, every year, it is said that you can hear the devil’s scream and see his shadow."
