Pine Knob, or "The Knob" as it was called by area residents, has been a community landmark for well over a century. This majestic sculpture of stone and timber has been the nucleus for a wide variety of area activities over many decades and was home to the nearby Pine Knob School House until it closed in 1963. The rock has the government's official seal, marking it's [sic] 1150" elevation above sea level, and exploring it has always been a memorable experience for young adventurers, most of all it is an area known as home to all of the following families who raised children, farmed the land, and joined in fellowship as residents of 'Pine Knob':
