    Rockwall, a city in Texas, was named after an actual rock wall found buried 40 feet below the surface in 1852 as the settlers were digging a water well. Geologists believe it's a natural formation. Locals believe it is a lost city, pre-great flood that God sent when Noah built the Ark.
    The rock wall is 3.5 miles wide by 5.6 miles long. This wall has a rectangular shape like a wall around a city. In the video below, you will hear how artifacts and large giant like bones were found leading people to believe there were giants in this area before the great flood.

    This mystery may never be solved. Who would have known? Just goes to show how much history can be in one small area off the beaten path. Visit Rockwall, it's a fun weekend for the family or friends.

    If you ever wondered what it would be like living in a full blown subdivision but minutes away from the lake and country living, check out Rockwall where you have all of this plus plenty of things to do, places to go and people to see.

    Rockwall offers many different subdivisions built decades over the years to date. Located near Lake Ray Hubbard gives all of Rockwall a special charm that other cities don't compare. Got children in school? Take a look at the reviews on Rockwall ISD?

    The Harbor in Rockwall has been a long time "hot spot" for those who know about it. From hanging out at Lake Ray Hubbard to the fireworks over the lake on 4th of July, it's only one of the many awesome places to visit "outside your normal stuff to do", just off of Hwy I-30, exit Horizon.

    North of The Harbor drive up 205 and it will take you to downtown Rockwall in minutes. This interesting area has grown exponentially over the past few years. There are new trendy shops, dining, and new hangouts like the "Mint Julep".

    Keep going north and you will see new buildings/businesses that have popped outta nowhere. With all of the grocery stores, pharmacies, emergency cares, hospital care and more, why would you want to live anywhere else. Lake Ray Hubbard is just a bonus.

    Rockwall is unique in many ways! One unique character is most cities in Texas are named after a person, but Rockwall is named after a narrow row of hard mineral stones that appear to be stacked on top of one another, forming what looks like a "rock wall". I went to high school in Rockwall and I never saw this wall but I have heard it is on private land. The city tried to pass a bond program to purchase the land, excavating the wall and preserving it but the bond program failed.

    Other ways Rockwall is unique is it is the "smallest" county in Texas on one of the "bigger" lakes; Lake Ray Hubbard. Residents enjoy the Harbor area for movies, dining and boating. It also has a unique revitalized downtown square with an assortment of dining and shopping!

    Back in the day no one had heard of this town with a strange name on a lake. The name was derived from a curious rock formation found within the town in the 1800's and the lake was constructed in 1967. It was filled by rains in 1968! My dad built a home on Lake Ray Hubbard in 1972. The house overlooked Lake Ray Hubbard and we had amazing views of the Dallas skyline. The town had one stop light and 3 restaurants! We didn't realize how small it really was until it grew! Rockwall has a special place in my heart and I only went one grade there - my senior year!

    Today Rockwall is one of the best places to live in the DFW area. It is 22 miles east of downtown Dallas with a population of over 41,000. It is said that 80% of the residents reside within 1 mile of a park! RThe Harbor is a beautiful waterfront district with concerts, shopping, movies dining and breathtaking sunsets! Rockwall revitalized the Historic Downtown this last year! It is so much fun to go there for music, dining or festivals on the square.

    Housing options are plentiful and for EVERY buyer. Prices for active homes on the market right now range from $199,900 to $6,500,000! Square footage is 1800 to 7000+. You can purchase new construction or a beautiful pre-owned home. Come out and see Rockwall for yourself, I can take you by all the hotspots, show you the schools and maybe stop at my new favorite restaurants ...Charlies Street Tacos on the square!!

    Sellers always ask if they should plant flowers in the front yard before listing their home? Yes!

Color by the front door draws people in and sets the overall tone on how they feel about the home. There is no need to plant the flowers over the whole front yard but in an angle by the front door drawing the buyers in!
