|Rocky Springs Methodist Church (built 1837)|
|Small statue in front of the church|
At one time 2,600 people lived here. Built from a watering hole and a rocky outcropping that gave the town it's name, slowly died off in the early 1900's thanks to a pandemic and then boil weevil infestation of cotton crops.
Even the cemetery is grown up.
|Rocky Springs Cemetery (behind or north of the church)|
