It's among the oldest towns in the Ozarks. It was a county seat that was burned by Civil War soldiers. Then it moved to a large spring. They built a millpond, a mill, a general store and post office, a one room school and a church. Now its a world famous trout fishing resort and lodge with cabins and houses for fishers to spend a night or a couple of weeks. It's officially the Rainbow Trout Farm. Besides fishers in the stream, workers raise thousands of trout for Ozarks area food stores and restaurants. KY3's Ed Fillmer produced several stories about Rockbridge over the years. This one is from 2014.
