1891 :: Waterworks for Rockdale


Rockdale, Tex., April 25. -- Arrangements were perfected to-day between an authorized committee of the city council and Mr. M.P. Kelley, representative of eastern parties, whereby a $42,000 system of waterworks will be established here, work to commence in sixty days and to be completed before January next. This clinches a long felt ambition of the town, and Mr. Kelley assures the council that an ice and electric plant will immediately follow. Dallas Morning News, April 26, 1891
