Beverly Petrogylph Site
Named here after Robert Beverly (1722) who reported the site. The Virginia Rockart Survey attempted to locate the glyph and site but, for the present, it is lost. Beverley reports:

 By the Falls of James River Colonel Byrdís Land, there lyes a Rock which I have seen. About a mile from the River, wherein are fairly imprest several Marks like the Footsteps of a gigantick Man, each Step being about five Foot asunder: These they aver to be the Track of their God.

The site was still visible a hundred and fifty years later (Howison 1848), but the glyph apparently has been move. Other foot print sites are: Spout Run, Short Mountain, and Ncklesville.
