Flag Rock Recreation Area was dedicated Oct. 12, 1974. The story of how the American flag came to be posted atop the rock pillar dates back to the 1920s when a German immigrant is said to have climbed atop the rock and erected the flag as a symbol of love for his newfound home.

Check out this article from Virginia Town and City that describes the dedication of the recreation area.
