Thanks!

    Heather – from the artwork on the rock from a couple days ago regarding whether Humpty Dumpty was really an egg, I would say the “Sing”/Bird rock was painted by the same artist.

  2. Leslie says:

    Heather – I know who painted the Sing rock! That was one of my favorites, too. I’m sure she has a photo of it, so I’ll be sure to have her contact you.

    One of my other favorites over the years was when the rock was painted completely gray, and someone had written “Now I’m just a rock again.”

    can anyone paint it? Do you need permission? my kids have wanted to do it forever!

  4. Lisa Allmendinger says:

    Yes, Julia, anyone can paint the rock. And, please feel free to send me a photo of the finished product if you and your kids decide to make a project of it. The rock is a fun message board for the community.

    Any idea how many coats of paint that thing has on it?

  6. Lisa Allmendinger says:

    I wouldn’t venture a guess, but perhaps readers might like to take a shot at it.

    Who are the lady and child in front of what looks like the beginning of the ‘rock’? When was that taken and what is the history of how we inherited it. It’s lovely, brightens a day even when it’s raining, snowing, sleeting….we always have…’the rock’.

  8. Jane Wood says:

    The rock used to be on the old, old high school property on East and Harrison Streets. The last class at that school I am told was the class of 1959. Both of my parents, Nancy and Clarence Wood went to school when it was on Harrison. I used to joke, that the rock was probably a pebble before people started painting on it.

  9. Jane Wood says:

    Now due to that picture of the rock with the lady and boy I will have to change my pebble story.

    This is fantastic!! I don’t live in Chelsea anymore, but I always check the rock when I come home. It’s so great that I can see the rock wherever I am!

    We used to paint the rock all the time – my parents painted it when I came back from Japan (but they put all our names on it so it wouldn’t get painted over). We painted it for my grandma’s birthday, and I think when she moved to Chelsea. We painted it for my sister’s birthday a couple times, but her birthday is in September, so it always got painted over for the football game. If we send you the pictures, can they be added to the archives?
