The Town of Rockville
The Town of Rockville was settled in 1862 to expand the settlement of the Mormons. They came and settled and histories explain they made the desert bloom. The town is located along the Virgin River on highway 9 just a few miles from Zion National Park and about 257 people live there. The population has not changed that much since it was settled. It doesn’t have culinary shares to be able to build so if you want to live in Rockville it is best to buy an existing property that has a share of water. The town wants to keep its character as a small agricultural town and growth is fairly slow. They do not allow commercial zoning to protect it small town character. It is a very special place that everyone adores and it has become a retirerment community. Hiking and biking are becoming popular on the mesas above the town. If you want to live in a small town Rockville is a place to consider. I wrote a book about the history of Rockville and you can find it at www.graftonheritage.org.
