White Rock, a village of Republic county, is located on the west side of the Republican river in White Rock township about 14 miles northwest of Belleville, the county seat. It was the first settlement west of the Republican river and was settled in 1866 by Thomas Lovewell. The town was laid out in 1871. Indian outrages were common and before 1870 some 25 people were either killed or carried away from this settlement. At one time White Rock was an important point. It was in the path of the leading emigrant route from Nebraska to the homestead territory. In 1873 there were 3 general stores, a sawmill, a corn mill and a hotel. At present there are no business houses, only about 30 people, and the mail comes by rural route from Courtland.
