County made organizing school districts a priority in the 1890s and Rolla was
on of 39 throughout the county. While there are no population figures available,
Rolla did have a post office from 1894 until 1910.
After that date, mail
was routed through Wellington.
Rolla did have a community church and a brick schoolhouse, however no dates or
photographs are available.
The village managed to stay afloat through the
Great Depression and the postwar years.
