Rokeby was a postal hamlet and farm settlement, located in Lanark County about 10 kilometres east of Maberley. It was always a small place with a population that hovered between 20 and 30.
At its height, Rockby contained a general store, post office and a blacksmith, along with a small Anglican Church and cemetery. A school was located one concession north. The post office only remained open for a few short years.
Today Rokeby continues to support a small population and a number of original structures still stand. These include the store, and a number of outbuildings. Although they demolished the church many years ago, the church grounds remain well-maintained. Unfortunately, they cannot say the same for the Anglican cemetery which they classified as “abandoned” many years ago. Learn more
