ROCKWALL (December 11, 2013) America Unearthed will air the “Great Wall of Texas” – an episode about the mysterious underground rock wall formation for which Rockwall, TX is named – this Saturday December 14th at 9PM EST/8PM CST on the H2 network.

Show host and forensic geologist Scott Wolter will explore if the wall is man-made or a natural formation, a mystery that has gone unsolved since the discovery of the wall in the 1850’s.
