  This is one of the many rock walls featured by residential homes in Kinderhook.  This particular wall is by the home of James, Julie Foster and son James which displays the silhouette of the state of Illinois in white rock.  The rocks have endured the many elements through the years and enhance the village of Kinderhook.
