Hanging Rock considered a danger by the department of transportation protrudes from the Side of a Hill along state route 320 near Valley forge. It was listed on the National Register of historic places on dec. 24. The Valley forge historical society owners of the Rock since 1924, began campaigning to get it on the National Register in 1996. Society members say the listing was needed to thwart plans by Penn Dot to take off part of the Rock in a Road improvement project. A we Hope that the department of transportation will consider other alternatives beside destruction of the Rock to solve their Roadway problems a said society president Jean Pierre Touvel. According to Penn Dot it was never the departments intent to destroy the Rock. Penn Dot did submit a study to the state historic preservation Board contending that the Rock was unworthy of Register status. According to department spokesman Gene Blaum Penn Dot proposed cutting off some of the Rock to remove a safety Hazard. Matt Bochanski Penn Dot Highway design supervisor said the Road Width varies from 23 feet to 43 feet along that stretch. The area in front of the Rock is 24 feet wide but the Rock protrudes into that space actually allowing Drivers Only 20 feet of room. Amy Riggleman press Secretary for the Pennsylvania historical and museum commission said Register status will not make the Rock immune to Road improvement plans but Penn Dot will have to ensure that its plans make a minimal Impact on the Rock. The local Community first rallied to save the Rock in 1917, when the state Highway department proposed dynamite no it. The state eventually backed Down but five More Battles followed.
