Rock Springs is at the intersection of Farm roads 729 and 1969, eleven miles west of Jefferson in western Marion County. In 1938 the community had a one-room schoolhouse that accommodated twenty-nine black elementary students and one teacher. In 1962 the settlement consisted of several scattered dwellings and a church, and in 1983 the church was still marked on state highway maps.
