History

Rockland is in the center of an extensive farming district, about 15 miles south of American Falls, and 30 miles by roundabout road southwest of Pocatello. The gardens and farms are irrigated from Rock Creek and its tributaries, but so far dry farming has not proven much of a success. The total population of the Rockland Precinct was 730 in 1930.
