The Story Behind The Rock

The city of Maxwell has been chosen as the site for the Story County Freedom Rock as a part of the Freedom Rock Tour headed up by artist Ray “Bubba” Sorensen. Bubba has been painting the original Freedom Rock in Greenfield, Iowa each year since 1999 as a “Thank You” to our Nations veterans for their sacrifice and service. The Freedom Rock was so popular Bubba decided to extend the message of the Freedom Rock to each of the 99 counties in Iowa.

Story County Freedom Rock & Memorial

Maxwell received word in June they were chosen as the site for the Story County rock and by early August the 52,000 pound rock was moved to the city park next to an existing veteran’s memorial for fallen soldiers. The mural on the rock is scheduled to be completed summer 2015. Volunteers will be working hard to landscape the area, beginning spring 2014. Our goal is to have a brick walkway constructed, with the names of Story County veterans engraved on each brick, as a part of the landscape around the rock. For a limited time the price is $30 per brick. The deadline to get your form turned in is December 31, 2013, for the first round of bricks to be placed in the spring of 2014. After that, bricks will be placed on an annual basis. Local businesses have order forms, or you can visit us online at and download a form. We would like you to share this information to all of Story County to give them the opportunity to support a veteran’s brick.


We will be installing a kiosk with a protective cover over the brass plating to display the names of families and businesses that helped sponsor this project. Donation categories for the kiosk are:
