Rockwell Dam is a small, stone dam located just off Hebron Avenue and north of the abandoned Rockwell Street. It holds back a small, mostly filled pond.

The dam was likely used to irrigation purposes, due to the fact that not only is there no sluiceway visible to divert the water to power something nearly but it is located nearby the farmstead ruins off Rockwell Street.

There are no records of the dam, so the date is unknown. It appears to be pretty old as the dam is in bad shape and is mostly held together by roots and dirt.
