Inscription.  John W. McCormick (1791-1825) was one of the first European-American pioneers of Indianapolis, settling near the eastern end of the former Washington Street Bridge in 1820. He built one of the first taverns in the area. In June of 1820, the tavern hosted the State Commissioner's meeting to determine the location of the New State Capital. McCormick was chosen as the County Commissioner in 1822. McCormick's Rock commemorates the site of John McCormick's cabin as the first settler of Indianapolis on the east bank of the White River which is now the White River State Park.
 
Erected by Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis.
