Rockford School, Pike County, MO

Our family has owned Rockford Farms since the 1950's.  The name Rockford comes from the Ramsay Creek that runs along our property.  The creek has a slab rock bottom and a "ford" is a place that you cross the creek…viola!  Rockford.  There is a school house from the 1850's on our property that my father's sister transformed into a house back in the 1950s. This was called the Rockford School.  This was formally called Griffith School where the children of James Griffith were taught.
