Rocky Point, Mississippi

Attala County, Mississippi

(submitted by and photos by Gerald & Tammy Westmoreland)

Rocky Point is located about 10 miles NW of Kosciusko in a hilly flint rock section which probably accounta for its name. A settlement was started here in 1835 when a store was built on Rockport Road that supplied the area with general merchandise and liquor. The first store was probably operated by Wi11iam McAdory who established a library and did much to advance the community.

A post office was established here after the McAdory interests were purchased by J.D. Sanders. The post office was open until Rural Free Delivery came about.
