A Brief History Of Rockwall TX
There is plenty of scientific evidence that the area around Rockwall was populated as early as 13,000 years ago. Native American tribes inhabited the area until settlers arrived in the middle of the 19th Century. The predominant tribes were the Creek and Caddo Indians.
Once the settlers arrived, they started digging wells to provide water for the growing population. Soon, they struck wall formations that they suspected were man-made. The rock wall formations became the inspiration for the city’s name in 1854 when it was officially established as a town. With later geological studies, it was discovered that the formations were naturally occurring and not man-made.
