Finney County Point of Rocks

Picture of property Mansfield Road
Pierceville vicinity (Finney County)
Listed in National Register 2013-07-17

Architect: N/A
Category: transportation

Finney County Point of Rocks is one of at least four similarly named sites along the Santa Fe Trail network that aided travelers in their navigation of the road. The trail passed to the immediate south of this natural rock formation and became the foundation for modern-day Mansfield Road. The site is located on a stretch of the trail that connected the Lower and Upper Arkansas River crossings. The Upper Arkansas River Crossing was the last major opportunity to decide between the Cimarron and Mountain routes; thus, travelers who passed this rock formation included those going to Lower Cimarron Spring via the Upper Arkansas River Crossing and those going to Bent’s Fort in Colorado. Because of its navigational role, Finney County Point of Rocks is nationally significant for its association with transportation and commerce along the trail from 1821 to 1870.
