A community on the north bank of the Skagit River, upstream from the mouth of the Sauk River east of Sedro-Woolley. Albert von Pressentin, a storekeeper at Sauk moved to the site of Rockport to build a hotel in anticipation of the arrival of a rail line. When the railroad arrived in 1901 “…he had a new hotel ready, built on a solid rock foundation which he called the Rockport Hotel. It had twenty-one rooms…. truly luxurious accommodations for such a remote spot.”
