Feel free to participate in our forum, view Rockford as it appeared in 1880 in our map section,  visit our puzzle pages and put together our Ashton Building or a view of North Main looking south towards the Coronado Theater jigsaw puzzles. Find out what was made in Rockford over the years or the people of interest who made it all possible.
