Early explorers of the driftless area noted this "small, isolated vertical rock." The first settlers removed the easily available rubble for building foundations and chimneys. Soon horses and buggies cut between the rocks and established the roadway. The natural gateway became a memorable view for passers-by.

By 1986 the need for safe movement of traffic conflicted with the desire to preserve the scenic and historical value of the "Little Rock." Having lived all his life in the shadow of the rock, Halsey Rinehart spearheaded efforts to preserve this natural monument for future generations.

Dedicated to the memory of Halsey Rinehart, 1914-1990.
