Table Rock in Wheeling

Table Rock, on private property off of Table Rock Lane in rural Wheeling, is: 
“a peculiar formation of a sandstone of the Dunkard Series…A pillar of sandstone averaging a meter high and varying from about 2 to nearly 3 m in diameter, supports an irregular horizontal slab averaging a little more than 2 m thick (the ‘Table’ of the Table Rock), about 20 sq. m in maximum area, 4 m in greatest east to west measurement, almost 5 m in greatest north to south measurement. Projecting vertically from the center of the ‘Table’ is a cylinder of sandstone 60 cm high in the west, 1 m high on the east, with approximately the same 2 to 3 m range in diameter as the base pedestal."
