Rock County, located in the southwest corner of Minnesota, is proud to share its history through a pictorial journey of settlement, growth, and development. The county is, and has always been, an agricultural community. One of its outstanding features is the Sioux Quartzite cliff line visible to settlers who moved in or came through the area as well as today's residents and visitors. The cliff line is 120 feet high and stretches for about two miles. It was formed through the early glacier period and travels northwest through Rock County, past the South Dakota border, before going back underground. The rock was quarried and used in many of the homes and businesses in Luverne and other Rock County communities.

The Rock County Historical Society has collected the historical photographs used in this volume. Members of the board of directors have volunteered many hours to review the photographs in the society collection. They are also responsible for contacting others in Rock County to round out the pictorial history. Thanks goes out to all of the people who offered photographs, information, and time to put this book together.
