Would you please post this announcement at your site for the benefit of those interested in the Rockwall subject who may be able to visit?

There will also be a brown bag seminar at the courthouse in Rockwall sponsored by the Rockwall
Historical Foundation in February. Dates will be announced on their webpage which currently features a chronology of investigations of the rock walls ending with John Lindsey’s statement in 1998 that evidence is growing that the walls are manmade. Thanks.

The Royse City Museum is currently displaying an exhibit featuring Virgil Ray Holt’s research on the rock walls of Rockwall. I had the good fortune to meet Ray Holt a few years ago when he visited John Lindsey at his old house on Ridge Road.

Later, Ray invited me to his home to view numerous artifacts he had obtained in the course of conducting estate sales of collectors in the area. Ray also gave me a map of various old springs and wells throughout Rockwall County which have since been covered by the construction explosion since 1965 when Lake Ray Hubbard was completed.

Some of these old mineral and hot springs are a valuable clue to the neglected geology of Rockwall County. Ray has long been a member of the Rockwall Historical Foundation and a lifelong resident of Rockwall with a great interest in the rock walls.

As soon as I can make it down to the exhibit I will give a more detailed description. Meanwhile, those interested can find directions and more information on the
museum here:

Original Texas Rockwall Story

Notes on the Missisippi Great Wall and the Rock Wall of Rockwall Texas

The other day, we came across the story of another ancient monument that is responsible for the name of the modern location, just as Rockwall, Texas is named for a Rock Wall.

“FORT MOUNTAIN STATE PARK, Ga. –The remains of the 855-foot stone wall that gives Fort Mountain its name wind like a snake around the northeast Georgia park, and its very presence begs a question: Who put them there?”

Who knew that the early Americans were so literal? We wonder how many other localities in the U.S. are named for such ancient ruins? or as science would say; natural formations :0). Are they correct? Who knows? But I think that the bias is for nature rather than for intelligent design. After all, if they are man made, who made them?

We recieved the following note from David Campbell of Anarchaeology.com and we’re posting it because we know that so many from Texas are interested in the Rock Wall of Rockwall, Texas.

Our story on the Mississippi Great Wall is here.

“I recently read your entry on the Mississippi Walls…. . It had been a while since I checked into your site and I don’t know how I missed that one. ….The description and photo is practically identical with walls at Rockwall.

Also I was surprised to see that you’d linked the St. Louis newspaper account of the other walls down on the Sabine River. Recently a mainstream archaeologist mentioned that he’d read that one in going through some old archives but he did not have nearly as much information as you posted at at your site.

As soon as I saw the articles, I forwarded the link to John L. and Dee J. down in Rockwall.

Dee …gave me a lead a couple of years ago on a green glass pavement that had been exposed during a flood back in the 50′s. Some of the blocks had been on display at a bicycle shop there years back but the shop and the blocks have since gone off the radar and I hit a dead end.

Since I often see visits to my website, anarchaeology.com linked from your site, I’d be glad to network with any interested parties to pool information…….
