ROCK HOUSE SCHOOL, CHURCH, MASONIC LODGE

ROCK HOUSE, a school, church, and Masonic Lodge combined, was built about 1873 by Dr. Stout, who deeded the land to the school. William "Bill" Snell and William T. Claunch oversaw the construction of the two story rock building 6 miles northeast of Hamilton . The Masonic Lodge used the upper story for their meetings for about two years, and the ground floor was used for school and church services. This was the first Lodge hall the Masons had in the county. 

This historic building was torched for fun by some local juveniles in the 1980's.

Uel Livingston, who was a Sargeant in the 30th Cav, CSA, from Hamilton, settled in the Rock House community. --Charlene Livingston Rose.
