Standing Stone Creek

Standing Stone Creek near its mouth in Huntingdon

Standing Stone Creek is a 34.2-mile-long (55.0 km)[1] tributary of the Juniata River in Huntingdon and Centre counties, Pennsylvania, in the United States.[2]

Allegedly, when the first European visitors arrived at the creek's mouth, they found a Native American camp whose lodges were arranged in a circle, centered by a 14-foot-high, six-inch-square stone pillar, marked with petroglyphs. When the Native Americans left, they took the stone with them. But the creek's name remains in memory of that monument.[2]

Standing Stone Creek begins in Centre County within Rothrock State Forest, just north of Penn-Roosevelt State Park. Standing Stone Creek joins the Juniata River in the borough of Huntingdon.[2]
