Rockne Museum

Do you know how Rockne was named?

Yesterday I was out in Rockne TX taking a picture of a home that is about to close for one of my Buyers.  Cute little vintage home!

While I was in the area I took a few minutes to stop in the Rockne Museum.  I had driven by it for many years always in a hurry.  Yesterday I made myself stop and I was so glad I did.

There are some amazing old buildings that have been reconstructed and moved there.  I enjoyed walking around them and thinking on how life must have been back in those days.

Then I headed over to the Hilbig Museum which was closed to see what the hours were and that is where I saw a bust of Newt Rockne.  Unfortunately my picture didn’t turn out of it ( drat I have to go back lol).  That is how I learned that Rockne got it’s name from the kids that were attending the Sacred Heart school back in 1931.  They were given the opportunity to vote on a name and they voted to name it after Rockne as he had recently perished in a plane crash.  Who knew!
