Court House Square

History: When Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart and his cavalrymen arrived in Rockville on June 28, 1863, they arrested about 400 men. Rockville residents, despite conflicting loyalties, defended the freedom of their neighbors; Rockvillians were united by community. In 1913, a statue of a Confederate soldier was added to the front of the courthouse but has since been replaced by another statue. The Confederate soldier statue is now located towards the back left side of the old court house.
