1. The Confederate Monument
Originally erected on Jefferson Davis's birthday in 1913 in front of the Red Brick Courthouse in Rockville, this statue produced by the Falvey Granite Company, is said to have been modeled on Spencer C. Jones a prominent Confederate veteran and brother-in-law of the Falveys. It was moved to an obscure site on the east lawn of the Courthouse in 1971 and has now been moved to White's Ferry.
