One of the historical land marks of this area is the site of the rock house located twelve miles north of Crosbyton in Blanco Canyon. As viewed from the entrance, the Crosby County Memorial Building which was erected in 1958 is a replica of this pioneer residence built by Uncle Hank Smith in 1877.

A general store including a post office was located here and upon this site the first white child was born in Crosby County.
