Rockwall Founders Day Festival 2014 Featuring The Charlie Daniels Band

Rockwall is 160 years old and going and growing strong!  A full day of fun activities are planned to celebrate Rockwalls' 160th birthday on Saturday, May 17th and it's all FREE even the parking!  All the activities including food, shopping, a kid zone, and plenty of live music all starts at Harry Meyers Park at 10am.  The park is located at 945 East Washington.  The headline entertainment, The Charlie Daniels Band, will take the stage at 7pm.

A little Rockwall history:  The area that is now Rockwall was occupied in the early 1800s by the Caddo and Creek Indian tribes. When the first Anglo settlers reached the area in the 1840s, they found the two tribes at war. The National Road of the Republic of Texas was built through the area in the mid-1840s, and the new community was founded along this road. Rockwall takes its name from an underground formation discovered by Terry Wade in 1852. Wade was digging a well near what is now the Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market when he discovered the wall-like formation. No one has ever determined if the wall is man-made or if it's a natural formation. Rockwall was officially platted as a community by Elijah Elgin on April 17, 1854, when he purchased a 40-acre tract from W.B. Bowles. The area that became Rockwall was a small part of the 572-acre homestead of Benjamin F. Boydstun.

Did you know that Rockwall County is geographically the smallest county in Texas?  It's also one of the fastest growing areas in the United States! To find out more about homes and property in Rockwall, visit: www.RockwallHomes.info  or start your next home search at www.MarkSellsTexas.com
