History & History Related Items

Red Rock history:

Some say the name came from the red rock used when James Brewer, the first settler, built his chimney sometime in the 1850s. The area was first known as Hannah Land. When a post office was opened in 1870, it was named Red Rock. In only a few years, the little community was thriving, including a gristmill and cotton gin. When the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad came by around 1890, the town was moved a short distance to be near the tracks. By the early 1900's, the population stood at 500 and was doing well. Later, around 1925, drilling for oil began here.
