A dreadful little town in southwestern Ontario, with a population of about 3,000 at last count. Founded in the 19th century by John Harris, its only noteworthy feature is the gorgeous Rockwood Conservation Area, a fenced-off area of protected wilderness complete with mountain paths, lakes, and campgrounds. It costs a bit to get into legally, but it has a secret entrance easily accessable via the playground of Rockwood Centennial Public School. Located less than a half-hour trip away from the far more populous city of Guelph, it's a nice place to visit, but I pity the fool who lives there.

Rock"wood` (?), n. Min.

Ligniform asbestus; also, fossil wood.
