The Red Rock Line

As white men advanced their habitations across Iowa they were retarded from 1842 to 1846 at the Red Rock Line fixed by the Indian treaty at the agency, Wappello County, 1842.

This line was established and marked by Geo. W. Harrison, 1842, by beginning at the Red Rock on the Des Moines River running thence south to the Missouri state boundary, passing near the Graceland Cemetery west from this stone 530 rods.
