History: The region has a rich history with humans having camped in the area for some 12,000 years. “E Rock” has fascinated humans for thousands of years. As a result, it has inspired many stories that endure today. Most of these are rooted infancy rather than fact. Tonkawa Indians thought that ghost fires flickered on top of the dome. The odd creaking and groaning coming from the dome frightened them. But don’t worry! Geologists say that the dome creaks and groans as temperatures change. As for the ghost fires, the rock glitters on clear nights after rain. Scientists think the glittering is reflections from collected water or wet feldspar. One intriguing piece of factual history occurred when legendary Texas Ranger and surveyor Captain Jack Hays was surveying the near the rock in 1841. Indians attacked Hays and a group of men. Cut off from the others, Hays climbed the rock and holed up in a depression at the summit. He fought off his attackers for three hours before his companions came to his aid.
