Nick's Rock on the line between the towns of Plymouth and Kingston, not far from Monk's Hill is one of three rocks in Kingston which "testify" to the visits of the Devil as imprints of his feet and hooves prove "conclusively" that such visits were really made. The other two rocks are both called Devil's Rock. One lies near Bay Farm and the other in the brick-kiln pasture near C. Drew and Company on Stony Brook.

Nick's Rock was also used as a boundary marker for the town line between Plymouth and Kingston. Originally the rock marked the way for Nick's Rock Road, which was the main road from the early Plymouth settlement. The road branched at the rock with one direction heading towards Plympton and the other towards the Flaxing Place at Smelt Pond.
