  1. I lived in Rock Rift when I was about 8-9 years old. I remember it as a nice quiet town. This was about 1945. There was talk of flooding the town at that time. It is sad to see a town disappear like that. The remains of the acid factory,and the sawmill were there at the time.

  2. Thank you so much for the added pictures, especially the old one room schoolhouse. What a wonderful little town and such truly good people to live in it. Again, thank you so much!

  3. Looking for a book that was written about the old towns of Rockrift, Rock Royal, before the cannonsville damn, Can anyone help me out. Family Of Moses Edwards

    • You could get a book, I believe it’s still available through the Delaware county historical society, called Walking through time in Rock Rift. I have one of those. I grew up there myself, one of the DeMann girls, and we moved out just before the dam was built. My Dad grew up there, and was a lifelong resident. The book was edited and compiled by Patricia Breaky, I believe, who I went to school with for many years. Hope this was helpful.

  4. I would also be interested in a book about Rock Rift. I doubt if many pictures were taken before the flooding. I live near Albany NY, and the same thing happened to a small community in the area. I do remember growing up in Rock Rift,and still look back on happy times.
