Vandals and careless visitors threaten ruins of Rock House

Society considering fence; cameras and security not options

(Winston-Salem Journal) -
Vandals and careless visitors are threatening the Rock House ruins, one of the oldest structures in Stokes County.

The Rock House was built more than 220 years ago for John "Jack" Martin, a colonel in the Revolutionary War.

The Stokes County Historical Society is considering putting a fence around the ruins, said Charles Farlow, the president of the historical society.
