Frog Rock

Frog Rock

Frog Rock lives on Bainbridge Island and can be found hanging on the corner with her best friend, Ladybug. The rock is a glacial erratic. The two stacked granite boulders were painted by a pair of local residents to resemble a frog on June 6, 1971. The stones were reportedly once a single boulder which was dynamited in the 1950s or earlier, in order to remove it from a road right-of-way. After the dynamiting, the rock was known for a time as “Split Rock.”
