Columbus-Belmont State Park Anchor Stand – Columbus KY

Description

“The primary attraction in the park continues to be Polk’s giant chain, which is estimated to have been over a mile long before flooding and erosion destroyed part of it. With an anchor weighing between four and six tons and each chain link being eleven inches (279 mm) long, the Civilian Conservation Corps built a stone monument to hold the chain in 1934.”
