This historic landmark outside Lake George in Queensbury, New York is an ancient rock where Native Americans were known to rendezvous and ambush those passing by on the nearby road between Fort Edward and Fort William Henry.

One account tells that it got its name from a blind man who was brought here, tortured, and burnt to death over the rock. Some origin stories say that the rock is split due to repeated and heavy fires. Another story says that it’s called Blind Rock because a captive’s eyes were torn out and thrown into the fire in its cleft.
