Rockfish was frequently referenced in the CBS television series The Waltons. It was noted as being the closest town to Waltons Mountain. Which was the fictional version of the nearby community of Schuyler.
Also known as "Rockfish Depot" even though the railroad depot building has been gone for decades.
