Rocky Hollow

Rocky Hollow was on Cowan Creek and Farm Road 2338 ten miles northwest of Georgetown in northwest Williamson County. By 1880 it was the site of a Black school called Rocky Hollow and a White school called Yarbrough, and at different times the community had a small store and stagecoach stop, a church, and a cemetery. The Black school, which had twenty pupils in 1900, also served as a church. By 1977 only the cemetery remained.
