W. H. Croaker / Frog Rock
701 Old Highway 66 Waynesville Hill)
Prior to 1996 W. H. Croaker, the frog rock, was just a big rock. Then
artist Phil Nelson was asked to turn the rock into a frog. Legend has
it that kissing a frog can turn it into a prince, but there is no way
that kissing a rock will turn it into a frog. That apparently left Nelson
on his own to spend months bringing the rock to life as a frog named W.
H. Croaker. The hill is where the Croaker gets the W. H. in its name,
it stands for Waynesville Hill.
Heading west on 66 the world famous frog is located on the hill just
east of downtown Waynesville on Route 66, between Ousley Rd and Cusick
