The Historic Rockwell Museum was organized in 1996 by local citizens who volunteered time, labor, and money to preserve this important historic landmark. This building which once housed Rockwell's second Post Office has been restored as a museum to preserve and display the records, memorabilia, and artifacts of Rockwell's early years.
