Irondequoit in Monroe County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Here Stands one of the Oldest Pieces of Earth
Thousands of years ago it was torn from its homeland by a huge sheet of slowly moving ice and carried many miles to the south. Finally, with numerous others of its kind, the glacier abandoned it in this section of Irondequoit. Here it remains - mute evidence of a by-gone glacial period and of the slowly changing character of our earth.
