Stahlman began praying at a secluded rock, and after a year he developed a vision of dedicating rocks with specific names such as HEALTH, VEIL-LIFTING, CONSECRATION, HOPE, LOVE, AND COURAGE which are sometimes supported by verse or biblical reference. He encouraged people to spend time at these locations in prayer and meditation for the dedication that the rock supports.

Today, many of the rocks are on property owned by the Jefferson County Historical Society. In addition to the rocks, there are exhibits on nature of the area as well as remnants of an abandoned coal mine.
