Painted rocks are popping up all over Taylorville, and the rocks are bringing some cheer to many area residents. There is even a Facebook group for those who hide the rocks or want to find the rocks in the community.


Laura Robinson created the “Taylorville IL Rocks” Facebook group. She says she created the group because her parents found painted rock in Springfield, and that piqued her interest.



Robinson says in many other areas, the rocks are about spreading some cheer, and posting about where you found the rock online. But in Taylorville, she says hiding painted rocks has become more competitive.



Anyone can join the Taylorville IL Rocks Facebook group. For a link to the group, click here.
