Historic Sites, Memorials, Manpower, Labor, No plaque tells the story of this rock submarine floating on the grass alongside U.S. 41 in Kearsarge.

The Houghton County Road Commission furnished the idea and some of the materials, WPA provided labor, and School District No. 2 (now part of the Calumet Public Schools) also donated materials.
