The summit of this rock is the
highest known point in the state

-1940 feet above sea level-

This land, forty acres in area,
was presented to the commonwealth
on January 26, 1923, by the estate of

Jacob Gensman

The park was enlarged to 160 acres
by the Kiwanis Club of Wausau

This area was originally sandy beach
swept by the ocean. The sand was
finally hardened to quartzite rock
and by [slow] upheaval tilted on edge
and raised to its present height
