Target Rock at Grafton Pond.  The guide at Grafton Pond pointed out Target Rock and told us that during World War II someone painted a target on one of the rocks since Grafton was close to Springfield where they manufactured a lot of items for the war but when I went on line to find some more detail  it said the rock was used as a marker by a man who lived in the area in the 1940’s and 50’s.  He flew airplanes and the rock was like a flight tower, marking a spot close to where he could land his airplane on a grassy runway .
