A Museum Quality Art Print of Eagle Rocks in Smoke Holes WV with Yellow Tree. Local Lore has it that William Eagle climbed these rocks to obtain eagle eggs for his breakfast, while at the top and reaching for the eggs in the nest, the big mother eagle came along and knocked him off the rocks and he fell to his death. William Eagle did in fact exist, he was a soldier in the Revolutionary War and is buried at the base of these rocks in the Smoke Holes, however he died a very old man, so it is doubtful that someone of his advanced age went to the top of the rocks to obtain eggs. More likely, the rocks were just named after him because the land around the rocks probably belonged to him in the late 18th century. You can view his small tombstone right along the main Smoke Hole Road to the left of the rocks themselves. And yes, once in a while you can even see an eagle flying around the tops of these rocks. This picture shows the Eagle Rocks, with the South Branch of the Potomac River flowing by and a yellow tree at the left along with green grass and some late fall color.
