Dallas County Freedom Rock catches eyes of passersby

Admiring the Dallas County Freedom Rock Tuesday is Emma Kinkennon-Bettis, 9, of Van Meter, daughter of Nicole Kinkennon-Bettis and great-granddaughter of Linda Rote Grabill of Minburn.

The Dallas County Freedom Rock was completed Sunday night in Minburn by Ray “Bubba” Sorensen of Greenfield and has already become a hot spot for selfies.

Emma Kinkennon-Bettis, 9, of Van Meter posed Tuesday next to the Freedom Rock, which dwarfed her with its 18 tons of granite. Emma is the daughter of Nicole Kinkennon-Bettis.

“She asked me why there are no women o the Freedom Rock,” said Emma’s great-grandmother, Linda Rote Grabill of Minburn.

The American Legion Post 99 of Minburn sponsored the Dallas County Freedom Rock. Post Commander Don Richardson said a dedication of the memorial rock will be held once walkways are installed and a flagpole is erected.
