Historical Marker
     In the 1870s a stagecoach stop was established on the nearby Fort Worth-Fort Belknap Military Road. The stage line led to the area's early settlement, and the community that developed here became known as Rock Creek. In 1884 the Rock Creek Baptist Church was founded on a site about two miles southeast. By the early 1900s, when the congregation had relocated here, the Rock Creek Cemetery was in use. The earliest marked grave is that of Bertie Ladd (1885-96). Other burials include those of pioneer settlers and leaders of church and community. (1982)
