History in a Pecan Shell

One of Upshur County’s earliest communities. Red Rock started as a ferry crossing sometime in the 1840s. In fact, several ferries were in operation in the 1850s, but a larger operation at Walter’s Bluff made the Red Rock ferry obsolete in the early to mid 1860s. Whatever developed here has long since disappeared. Only the name remains on old records and vintage maps.
