Rock Township
Nest west of Settler is Rock, so named because Rock river runs diagonally from N. E. to S. W. across it. It is formed of Township 97, 46; and part of 96, 46. The Rock valley is one of the most beautiful portions of Sioux county. Rock is at present but thinly settled but offers many inducements land is cheap, while water power is abundant and will be improved at no distant day. Rock has 3 schoolhouses which will compare with any in the county. A town has been laid off at Rock mills, where a grist mill has been in operation for some 3 years, a Post office established, and when sooner or later a railroad traverses this valley, will, with its beautiful location become a ton of importance.
