Rockwall considers excavating its historic namesake

Perhaps only the natives know, but Rockwall really is named after a rock wall.

A stone archway on private property a few block west of the town square is all that remains visible, and even that is overgrown by vines and brush.

“When I look at it, I think you’re going to a secret garden,” said Mark Russo, city councilman. “It’s so tucked away. It’s kind of neat. It transports you to a different time for a second. What’s going on here? How did this get missed?”

Three men first found the rock wall while digging a well in 1852.

The stone wall dips more than seven stories into the earth, so the trio decided to name the town for it.

For years, the strange outcropping was something of a sideshow. The owners of the private property charged a quarter for admission to the natural wonder.
