Rock City Reviews

1 review
Rock City is a rural town located alongside Highway 75 and is between Rockford and Freeport. Rock City is centrally located between 2 other smaller towns Dakota and Davis. The school district is Dakota, located in Dakota. Rock City is a pretty quiet town. It's country living in town(if that's possible). It's a great place to raise a family.
