The Mystery Stone At Gretchen's Lock Is.....

We have a video on YouTube- Mystery Stone at Gretchen's Lock - about a stone that is down at Beaver Creek State Park- Gretchen's Lock Area.  The stone can be found behind the hitching post beside the restroom. 
It was once beside the old house, which was torn down in April of 2007.  I have speculated for years as to what it might be.  I finally decided to put the video up in an effort to see if anyone knew what it was.  To my surprise and delight my cousin, Billi Jo, saw the video and also attended one of our tours down there so she could see it for herself, and then she started doing her own research.  She was very successful in finding out what the stone is. Here is a web site that explains what this stone  was used for:

If you compare the pictures on the site, you may well agree with me about it.  As far as I am concerned, the mystery stone at Gretchen's Lock is a Lye Stone.  Let me know what you think!
