I think I know...

I'm not 100% sure as I am not a pro at fossil identification, but, I have a fossil very much like this. I'm not sure when you submitted this, but, just in case you still don't know, I'll tell you. I believe it to be a Favosite fossil. A Favosite is an extinct type of coral.

Coral I Think

Lindsey,

This looks like coral to me. It has been worn smooth by the river. You live in an area that has Cretaceous rocks at the surface.
