Rockport established in 1849.
From 1856 to 1956, Rockport had a post Office.
The New Orleans, Jackson and Great Northern Railroad was built through the settlement in 1909, and Rockport was a flag stop. Trains like The Rebel once passed through Rockport. The line is now abandoned.
By 1937, Rockport contained only a small store, gas station, post office and church.
