ROCKY HILL (Colorado County). Rocky Hill, in northwestern Colorado County near the Fayette county line (at 29°51' N, 96°38' W), rises to an elevation of 470 feet above sea level. The hill has seven crests that vary in height from ten to thirty feet and serve as the headwater drainages for five streams. Soils surrounding the hill are shallow silty loam topsoil over a mottled clay subsoil. On the hill most of the upper layers have eroded to reveal deposits of gravel, which were mined until recently. The Rocky Hill school, now abandoned, was on the northern slopes of the hill near the juncture of two unpaved roads.
