The Devil's Hitching Post

Once Elephant Rock near Wisconsin Dells was called the Devil's Hitching Post. Children were told that when a death occured in the community, a man on a coal black horse tied his mount there, and wandered over the hills and valleys, bringing the death angel. In very early days, tradition says, a man once saw the horse tied there and approached to investigate. The horse seemed friendly, and the stranger advanced to inspect and admire him. Suddenly a man appeared above on the cliff, and the horse turned and kicked, striking the curious man and killing him instantly.
