1936 Rockdale Lair. . . . The naming of a town was usually conceded to the railroad officials, but this honor came to Mrs. Ackerman of Cameron, whose husband, B.F. Ackerman, donated some part of the land on which the town was located, and for whom one of the main streets was named- Mr. and Mrs. Ackerman coming across country to the new town, passed an immense rock on a prairie about two or three miles north of town a rock about ten or twelve feet high, which must have been twenty-five or thirty feet in circumference. Mrs. Ackerman noticed this lone rock, and after arriving here and seeing the place was low with hills around, radiating as from some center, and remembering the lone rock, hit upon the idea of ROCKDALE. which she announced to the railroad officials; and that name they promptly accepted. So Rockdale, a name dear to the hearts of many, saw its beginning, and, with the swiftly passing years, was to witness phenomenal commercial and civic growth.
