The Rockwall County Historical Foundation was organized January 16, 1978, with 21 people attending the first meeting at the Chamber of Commerce building. The desire to preserve the heritage of Rockwall County was the main focus of these people as they adopted bylaws and elected officers and directors.

Charter Members numbered sixty-two. These first members heard guest speakers who explained how to organize and suggested projects, which the foundation might do in order to preserve the history of the county. Today’s members continue to make it their primary goal to pursue projects that will help preserve the area’s rich historical and cultural heritage.
