MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

An endangered landmark in Marshall County was named one of Alabama's "Places in Peril."

Painted Bluff is actually two bluffs overlooking the Tennessee River.

There are nearly 80 orange, red, and yellow drawings are on the rocks.

The symbolic images of people and animals were made around 600 years ago.

The Alabama Historical Commission and the Alabama Trust for Historic Preservation named Painted Bluff as a Place in Peril in its annual list.

The list is meant to make people aware about endangered sites and can help generate support to preserve them.
