Rockbridge, MO

The town was founded in the 19th century by pioneer families from Marion County, Kentucky, led by Captain Kim Amyx. The community was burned down during the American Civil War and rebuilt after the war. A post office called Rockbridge has been in operation since 1842. The community was named for a natural rock crossing at a nearby spring.

Rockbridge was once the county seat of a greater Ozark County, which encompassed today's Ozark and parts of Douglas and Howell counties.
