Chicken Farmer Rock: Twelve feet or so off the edge of Route 103, in South Newbury, New Hampshire there sits a flat brown-gray slab of rock. About 25 years ago, a young man secretly wrote on it in spray-painted letters,"CHICKEN FARMER, I LOVE YOU." The message endured for many years. It was repainted and renewed several times until April of 1997 when an unknown caller complained to the town.
Soon a patch of rust-colored primer was all that was left of the love letter. The sad event was the talk of the town. Then a week later the words had mysteriously reappeared, though bolder this time and in thicker letters. The townspeople then took up a petition to protect their landmark. The government responded with a letter, promising that the Chicken Rock's message would remain forever.
