Most accounts speak of these Texas "walls" as being upright ones a few miles from town.

     But earlier accounts say that when the first buildings were erected in Rockwall during the 1850s an immense flat rock floor or patio, miles across, was discovered.

     So are both stories true?

     Upright walls PLUS floor is surely an argument in favor of man-made over natural.

Here's another link with pics.

And another



Thanks for the links original.gif



I have been looking for these older photos on line for quite a while.

http://www.anarchaeology.com/quivira/rockwall/index.htm


The photos at the link above appear in a booklet I have that was
prepared by the Rockwall Chamber of Commerce in 1950.


Since I live just a few miles from Rockwall, I picked up the booklet
from their museum a few years ago.  I'd love to see the real thing,
but the museum couldn't tell me who to contact for that... they said
most of the wall is on private land... by the way... a small map in the
booklet showed outcroppings of the wall also in Collin County to the north...  


I have lived here even before Lake Ray Hubbard was created... there used
to be a huge valley... farmland and river... between Garland/Rowlett and
the city of Rockwall. I remember the road entering Rockwall went straight
uphill...  it was amazing.


For whatever it's worth... I think the wall is man made.  original.gif

i believe what matters now is not wheather its natural or not, its wheather the pictured carved into is are from an ancient civillization, there is something i have to say about this though, i really doubt it is a wall, 1 because it is buried and 2 because why would people go to all the effort to make it and then knock it down/carve stuff on it.
plese take nothing i say in this topic seriously, im just putting my thoeries out there tongue.gif

Here is an old 1950 Chamber of Commerce photo of the rock wall in Rockwall, Texas

Does this look natural or man made to you ?

Of course it's natural.  It's what geologists call a sandstone "dike."

Several of them, really.

Essan, you knew this.  You gave the following links to information on this subject in a post at ATS a year ago.

Are you being coy?

Here's Essan's links - not that it will do much good on this forum:

Link to part one

Link to part 2

Thanks Essan!

If it is a gigantic wall, I wonder what it was meant to keep out.


Hmmm.

Gigantic = tall.

Built to keep out tall tales?

Too bad it got buried.  The place is overrun with them now.

I live 15 minutes from rockwall here is Texas and there is no mystery anyone is talking about around here.  I have played the rockwall golf course and a good friend of mine lives on that golf course in Rockwall.   I have not heard of any of this.  But it does sound interesting.

You're right, the wall isn't discussed much anymore.  

I bet there are thousands who live in the city and
county of Rockwall who have never heard of the
rock wall and don't know the city and county are
named after it.

Pity.

An interesting topic original.gif

It sure would be nice to get at the truth here, there seem to be different versions of the wall as show in the photos. Both of those images look like a natural cliff face when compared to the wall in this photo:

http://www.pbase.com/texasone/image/38947748

However, because the wall has obviously been reworded it's anbody's guess what it looked like in-situ.


I would really like to revive this topic. links:

http://www.anarchaeology.com/
http://www.anarchaeology.com/quivira/index.htm

Some of the photos are obviously manmade constructions - those with round portals etc. From what I can tell the more natural looking ones are deeper. I have heard that part of the upper wall was destroyed by the deeper excavations. I don't know if that is true or not. But the upper wall may have been built atop a natural formation. Perhaps the debunkers only saw th latter or disregarded the former because of the latter. But I am neither a geologist or archeologist.

I live fairly close to Rockwall and have been trying to contact the people who took the most recent photos. I would like to see for myself. The info is sketchy but seems to indicate that the excavation may heve been filled in so this may no longer be possible.

BTW I've tried to register for the forums on the Rockwall site but keep getting errors. If anyone associated with the site reads this please contact me.

From the most recent pictures I'd say it's a quarry ......  Very clearly natural geology but with signs of human excavation.
