Rockdale County

Rockdale County wasn't designated until 1870, the Reconstruction Period. Its land was taken from Henry and Newton counties and its name from Rockdale Church. It is aptly named since great beds of granite lie just below the surface in most of the county. Conyers, the county seat, is named for a local physician who donated right-of-way for the first railroad through the town.
