The Town of Rockwell, once known as the place where a thirsty traveler could stop at the "Rock Well" for a refreshing drink, still boasts of its good water from its eight wells. Early settlers were Germans who came here as early as 1740. Examples of their perseverance and craftsmanship are two early stone churches: Organ Lutheran Church and Grace Lower Stone Church.
Organ Lutheran Church for many years boasted that it housed the only church organ in North Carolina. Both of these circa 1745 churches have adjoining graveyards which have proven to be a treasure-trove of genealogical information.
