A 1 acre site at Hanging Rock has been National Natural Landmark since May, 1986. The site, located on the southern bank of the Wabash River near the town of Lagro, contains a natural exposure of fossilized coral reef dating from the Silurian Period some 400 million years ago. The limestone reef deposit rises 75 feet (23 m) above the river and is being undercut by it, giving the site its "hanging" appearance.
