About Rockton, IL - Happy to be your hometown Heating & Air Conditioning Contractor!

Native American tribes initially occupied the region that is now known as Rockton. And, since then, it has undergone many changes. Local attractions are plentiful and the people in the region are so friendly and hospitable that you will immediately feel at home. The seasonal weather allows for a very traditional hometown ambiance with snowy, icy weather in the winter and hot weather in the summer. Married to a Native American princess, Stephen Mack, Jr. was the earliest white settler in the area. Mack made out very well in the 1837 treaty between the government and the Winnebago, and in 1839 he used a quantity of the money he received to construct a two-story home. This house survives in what is now the Macktown Forest Preserve. His original outpost was called Macktown.

William Talcott arrived to the area later and, after a dispute with Mack, established on the further side of the close by river contained inside what is now the village of Rockton. They dug a millrace and built a gristmill. Citizens who lived in Macktown would frequently go across the river to Rockton. Unfortunately, the bridge from washed away in 1851 and this event led citizens to permanently move to Rockton. Hononegah was the wife of Steven Mack and was a Native American princess was born in what is modern day Madison, Wisconsin. She was a Pottawatomie princess and a descendant of a chief. Her father, identified only by his English name "Blacksmith" was half Winnebago and part Pottawatomie. She is a bit of a local legend. The princess was said to be highly well-informed about herbal medicine. She is also said to have liked designing her own garments and decorating them with elaborate and colorful beadwork. Caucasian settlers saw her wearing a white woman's dress only once e occasion. She hated it and never did so again. There are other local stories about community ancestors helping her spearfish as well as other local lore. But, the stories are very difficult to prove.
