On a forested bluff overlooking the Rock and Pecatonica Rivers in Rockton, are the remnants of Winnebago County’s earliest
settlement. It was founded in the mid-1830’s by Stephen Andrew Mack, Jr., and his wife, Hononegah. Macktown, then known as Pekatonic, represents a time and place of change on the Illinois frontier when the fur trade collided with a progressive world.
