1874 :: Rockdale, a flourishing town

The Milam Messenger says: 

"Rockdale, the present terminus of the International Railroad, has already grown to be a live and flourishing town, and in a few weeks will number several thousand inhabitants. We have been informed by contractors and merchants who have purchased lots, that more than fifty large buildings are now under contract. The sound of the hammer is heard from morning until night." Galveston Daily News, February 18, 1874
