Rockwall owes its name to a unique underground formation discovered by three men digging a well. In 1852, Terry Utley Wade, Benjamin Boydstun, and William Clay Stevenson exposed what they termed a “rock wall.” When a city name was needed in 1854, Rockwall was chosen. In the 1880s, the railroad’s arrival had a significant impact on the area and ushered in cotton as the main cash crop. Throughout the 1940s and 1950s, Rockwall was the epitome of small-town Texas: Yellow Jacket football on Friday nights, movies at the Ritz theatre on the square, lunch at the Mecca Café, milk shakes at Cunningham’s Drugstore, and watching television through the front window of Payne’s Appliances. Resting on the banks of Lake Ray Hubbard and sitting in Dallas’s shadow, Rockwall is faced with the unique challenge of balancing rapid growth while maintaining its historic charm.

Review:

Title: New book about Rockwall unveiled at Historic Courthouse

Author: Leigh Plagens

Publisher: NeighborsGo

Date: 5/8/09
Local author and Rockwall County historian, Sheri Stodghill Fowler, gave the standing-room-only crowd at the Historic Courthouse its first glimpse of her newly published book,Images of America: Rockwall, at the final lecture of the season in the Brown Bag Series sponsored by the Rockwall County Historical Foundation (RCHF).
The book, a true labor of love by Sheri, contains 186 photos divided into four distinct chapters that tell the story of the growth and development of Rockwall from the 1840's to the present. Sheri, who has family ties going back six generations in Rockwall County, has been instrumental in archiving family photos for the RCHF. The book is available at the Historical museum at Harry Myers Park and at several commercial establishments in town for $21.99.
