Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Rockne, Texas

Rockne is an unincorporated community in Bastrop County, Texas, United States. It was named after Knute Rockne. In 1931, the children of Sacred Heart School were given the opportunity to name their town. A vote was taken, with the children electing to name the town after Rockne, who had died in a plane crash earlier that year. On March 10, 1988, Rockne opened its post office for one day, during which a Knute Rockne twenty-two-cent commemorative stamp was issued. A life size bust of Rockne was unveiled on March 4, 2006 and sits in front of the Rockne Museum.[citation needed]
