There are many versions of the legend of Spook Rock. One version appears in the book, “Greenport – The Forgotten Town” (1987). The legend says that when a church bell rings the rock turns over to reveal a Native American maiden and her lover. The rock that’s described rests in Claverack Creek and has been featured on everything from calendars to postcards.
