Located several blocks south of Route 66 on Railroad Avenue, Elmore Park's main claim to fame is the fact that it features a fragment of the world-famous Blarney Stone—taken from Blarney Castle in County Cork, Ireland. The stone is embedded in a cylindrical monument where it has rested since the 1950s.
There are a number of myths and legends surrounding the Blarney Stone, but chief among them is the belief that kissing the stone confers eloquence or skill in flattery.
The monument also bears a metal plaque with this inscription:
IMPORTED & ERECTED 1959
DEDICATED MARCH 17, 1959
BY ZOLLIE STEAKLEY
SECRETARY OF THE STATE OF TEXAS
