In 1946, Frank Ebling opened his shop in Pacific, MO, but moved to Rolla in 1957 when Route 66 was replaced by I-44, bypassing his stores. The hillbilly sign in front of the store was originally a sign of the Hillbillies, an anti-war movement in the mid-1940s. At the west end is the Totem Pole Trading Post, which was opened in 1946 as a gas crossing for foreign travellers. Jones moved to run an auction house that was the first of its kind in Missouri and one of only a handful of auction houses in North America.
To get a glimpse of Route 66, make sure you check out the Mule Trading Post just before you enter the eastern side of the city. You can head west to explore the sights of Doolittle's and Newburg, or south to the old train station at the western end of Rolla and east to St. Louis.
On the corner of Third Street and Rolla Street is the John A. Dillon Log House, built in 1857 and used as the first Phelps County Courthouse. Built by M. Gillioz, it is still the largest building in downtown Rola and has a Renaissance style, as it is located opposite the pine trees and 8th Street.
It was founded by the Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy and named after the city that gave it its name in 1958. Today Rolla is home to over 20,400 people and remains a paradise for outdoor adventurers. It was built on the site of the original Stonehenge in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is equipped with all the features of an original Stonehenge.
Italian immigrants who arrived at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century as farmers and ironworkers. The highlands were home to the first vineyards planted by Italian immigrants and were responsible for the development of many of the country's most popular wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Syrah. It was the highlands that the Italians first founded and in which one of the first successful American wine producers, Pirelli, was located.
Rolla was declared Phelps County's county seat in 1857 and officially declared a city the following year. The median income of a family was $38,975, and the median income of urban households was $26,479. Nine years later, William Edmund Smith, considered the founder of Rola, settled in the area and his family settled in the area. Nine-year-old William Edward Smith (1852 - 1884), considered by some to be the founder of Rollas.

A dividing line runs through the city, separating the huge Missouri River Basin from the much smaller Meremec Watershed (Bourbeuse) to the Little Piney Gasconade. It is crossed by the dividing lines that separate it from a much larger but still huge catchment area in Missouri (the Bour Beuse catchment) and the much smaller and less diverse Merenec catchment area. A dividing line runs through this city, separating the vast but still vast and diverse waterways of Missouri from another, much smaller but more diverse catchment, the "Bour beuse" (or "small pine") watershed in the Gas Conade from which it flows into the city.
