Rockwall was at a site four miles from Iverson in northeastern Hill County. One source suggests that sometime after the Civil War seventy families settled at the site near a spring. Soon thereafter, they constructed a square structure from local rock (Austin chalk) that according to a deed from a Mr. Revis could only be used for "Christian purposes." The families added a new roof and used the structure for a school. Apparently Rockwall was named for this structure. The spring became known as Rockwall Spring and was used as a watering place for cattle. Rockwall has not appeared on state highway maps in the twentieth century.
