ROCKY HOLLOW, TX
ROCKY HOLLOW, TEXAS. Rocky Hollow was on Cowan Creek and Farm Road 2338 ten miles northwest of Georgetown in northwest Williamson County. By 1880 it was the site of a black school called Rocky Hollow and a white school called Yarbrough, and at different times the community had a small store and stagecoach stop, a church, and a cemetery. The black school, which had twenty pupils in 1900, also served as a church. By 1977 only the cemetery remained.
