1. Frog Level - Concrete Frogs. Perched on two brick columns are two very large green frogs made of concrete, one is named "ALABAMA" the other named "GEORGIA". The frogs commemorate those who came from Georgia and Alabama and settled in the area. The city of Rodessa named in 1896, took over two smaller nearby communities - Spoonful and Frog Level, named for the noise of the frogs in a nearby pond.
