ROMA – A large rock buried in the ground that dates back to 1767 is the last remaining marker of its kind.

It designates the beginning of what is the Rio Grande Valley today.

The rock is located between graves in a Roma cemetery.

The porciones were the land grants given to the first settlers by the king of Spain.
