Derived from the Algonquin meno, [sic] meaning good and "min," a term for train, fruit or berry. Wile rice (menomin) flourished in the extensive wetlands of the pristine Menomonee Valley.
The boulder is located along the Hank Aaron State Trail and is easily accessible from westbound West Canal Street, at its intersection with North 32nd Street, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53208.

The boulder is included in the Merrill Park Eight Boulders and a Pavilion Tour.

Looking north along North 32nd Street.

Looking west along West Canal Street.
That's Miller Park (home of the Milwaukee Brewers) in the distance.
