The Village of Rockyford was first settled in 1913 and takes its name from a "rocky ford" that crossed Serviceberry Creek a half mile south of the village and was incorporated as a village in March 1919. More information about the history can be obtained from the Rockyford history book called "Where We Crossed the Creek and Settled."
