The Standing Stone was a 13-foot rock that once stood upright on a sandstone ledge in the area. It was the legendary boundary between Cherokee and Shawnee territory and marked the Cherokee Tallonteeskee Trail. It later served as a marker for the white men as they traveled west. An eight-foot remnant of this stone has been preserved and stands adjacent to the Monterey Branch Library.
