A Brief History: Over 300 million years ago, this mountain was part of a flat, marshy delta where long-since extinct tree-ferns and scale-trees grew, reaching 325 feet in height. Their fossilized remains may be found scattered about the mountain. Primitive Man lived here from the Paleo Period (12,000-8,000 BC) followed by Archaic Man (8,000-1,000 BC), Woodland Peoples (1,000 BC-800 AD) and Caddoan Tribes (800-1,700 AD). There is a Viking Rune Stone on the mountain not unlike those found at Heavener Runestone State Park as well as Poteau State Park.
The infamous ‘Trail of Tears’ ended here. The Choctaw and Chickasaw were apportioned land south, the Cherokee, Creek and Seminole land north of the Canadian River. It was in 1833 that Nathan Boone, son of Daniel Boone, surveyed the Old Indian Treaty Line, dividing the Creek Nation on the west from the Cherokee Nation to the east. Today, that boundary line demarcates the property’s western border.
Books cite rumors of treasures left by Desoto and Coronado who traversed Standing Rock Pass in the 1500's. In the 1880’s, Belle Starr and the Younger Brothers "hid out" on Standing Rock Mountain. Treasure Hunters leased this very property in the 1920’s and 1930’s searching for Belle Starr’s treasure.
Today, you may find the Treasure of Standing Rock with your eyes: The lake, beaches, cliffs, rock formations, trees and wildlife.
