"Devil's Foot Print"

Description

Image of a marker on Devils Foot Road located in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, 1930. 

A footprint-like natural impression or possibly petrosomatoglyph. Legends going back to the colonial era tell of a squaw being chased by the devil. Some say that she fled from Boston. Her pursuer is said to have left his footprints at Devil's Foot Rock, then at Chimney Hill in South Kingstown, and finally at Block Island.
