March 10, 1988 - Rockne, TX opens its post office for a day


In 1931 in a small town in Texas, the children at Sacred Heart School were given the chance to choose the name for their town. They choose to honor Knute Rockne and to this day there is a small town outside Austin called Rockne, Texas.

While the official unveiling of the Rockne Stamp occurred yesterday at Notre Dame, the rest of the country released it today. For one day, the town opened its Post Office and sold the commemorative Knute Rockne Stamp.
