Wildcat Branch Petroglyphs

The Wildcat Branch Petroglyphs are five prehistoric petroglyph carvings located near Fort Gay, West Virginia. The petroglyphs are carved on a large rock in the backyard of a private home and are within 100 feet (30 m) of a creek. Four of the carvings depict birds, while the fifth appears to depict a beaver. The carvings were likely made during the Late Woodland period.
