This is a picture of Starved Rock, 'The Gilbraltar of Illinois'. According to tradition, in 1722, some Indians were marooned here on top of the rock by Fox Indians, but were rescued by some Frenchmen. Among the Potawa-tomie Indians, legend has it that a part of the Illinois tribe was besieged on the rock and starved into submission and annihilated; thus Starved Rock acquired its name. It is on the Illinois River in LaSalle County. Due to the historical background and 1.451 acres of scenic of beauty, this makes Starved Rock a popular place for thousands of visitors each year.
