1889 :: News from Rockdale


Rockdale Messenger
(Rockdale, Tex.)
Vol. 17, Ed. 1 
Thursday, June 20, 1889

Mr. Frank Mundine of Lexington was in town Monday. He informs the Messenger that he will begin the work of rebuilding his hotel here next week. . . . The Texan says: . . . Rockdale pursues the even tenor of her way; she has no boom but is steadily and surely improving. Several new stores are contemplated; the Mundine hotel will be rebuilt at once; a large cotton shed and platform will be ready for the coming crop. A large number of town lots have changed hands and a private citizen is now building one of the finest residences in the county.
