Very nice! the right side is a bit hot, but not too bad.

Why the name Stone Church? (besides there being stone :P)

[align=justify]The formation, similar in size and shape to a church's cathedral stained glass window has drawn tourists and naturalists to this Dover site for more than one hundred years. [/align]
What is the geological and historical significance of the "Stone Church?"

[align=justify]The site is listed on the New York State Open Space Plan as an important site to protect. It is also the first known historical reference to the Town of Dover. According to legend dating back to the 1600's, Pequot Indian Chief Sassacas and his warriors sought refuge in the "Stone Church" to escape capture by the English Army. [/align]
