Rock Bluff, Texas

A view of the rocky bluff that extends for a couple hundred yards along the banks of the Sabano River northwest of De Leon.

The Rock Bluff community developed in the mid 1870s along a boulder strewn bluff of the Sabano River about seven miles west of De Leon.  The dozen or so families that formed the community included the Skaggs, Quinn, Browning, Harris, Forrest, Joiners and Robinetts.  Those families centered around the Rock Bluff Baptist Church, a school and a cemetery.

Rock Bluff is located about four miles northwest of De Leon near the intersection of County Roads 479 and 461, about two miles north of the Sipe Springs Highway (FM587).
