The name of this community was indeed derived from a “rock wall” of sorts, a rock formation found by the original settlers of the area. Several rocks had merged to form what appeared to be a man-made wall at the time, lending the name Rockwall to the community back in the mid 1850s.
Located alongside Lake Ray Hubbard, the area of Rockwall has plenty of attractions and entertainment opportunities such as The Harbor, Rockwall’s main commercial and entertainment spot. The community also has their own downtown area known as Main Street, a historic spot complete with quaint shopping and dining experiences.
