The Dallas County Freedom Rock was dedicated Saturday, Oct. 19 during ceremonies in Minburn.

The rock lies right next to The Nineteen14 right off the Raccoon River Valley Trail.

The Minburn American Legion Post 99 contracted with Freedom Rock painter Ray “Bubba” Sorensen to paint the 18-ton boulder, which was donated by Dennis Allen of Herndon and placed in Minburn April 28, 2018.

Sorensen painted his first Freedom Rock in 1999, and some 82 Iowa counties now boast a Freedom Rock. The Dallas County Freedom Rock project cost an estimated $18,000, including Sorensen’s $5,000 fee plus the planned landscaping and beautifying of the grounds around the rock.
