If you look at the right side of the rock, you will see an outline of a face looking upwards towards the sky ↗️↗️↗️. The Story of Face Rock

Storytelling has long been and continues to be an important way for Native Americans to pass on the wisdoms and truths of human existence to new generations. The story of Face Rock comes from the rich oral traditions of the Coquille Tribe and tells of a disaster late one night that resulted in changes to the landscape. The story warns people to follow the advice of their Elders and respect the power of Nature.

The Face Rock story was written down by Ottilla Kronenburg in 1909, after it was told to the townspeople by Indian Mary, a Coquille elder. Most written versions you find today are only shadows of the original story. The true story can only be found within the tradition itself.
