“I have already referred family and friends to Rockford Homes. We’re in a community where there are still a lot of spaces available and anytime that anyone who lives in Columbus is even thinking about looking for a new home, I immediately tell them my wonderful experience with Rockford Homes and what they have to offer.”
Bobby   5 Star Review
“We have special needs, in the fact that my mother-in-law lives with us, so we decided to build rather than purchase an existing home that we would have to compromise on. Building with Rockford Homes allowed us to get exactly what we want and within our budget. I would recommend Rockford to anyone that needed a home that fit their family, and because of their quality and willingness to work with you to achieve your dream home.”

Jerry   5 Star Review
“The quality was pretty well evident. You walk through, the trimming work was done correctly, the flooring was fantastic… you could just tell structurally, even going down into the basement and looking up at the floor joists and seeing how they were created, everything was well done. It’s a really quality product”
Terry   5 Star Review

“The quality at Rockford Homes was really unparalleled to other homes that we went into. Small details in terms of flooring, molding, fixtures and stonework, we were just really impressed with the quality and level of craftsmanship that went into building our home.”

Jenna   5 Star Review

“Every day I walk into my house, I look around and say to myself, “Wow, this is my dream house”. And I really mean that. This is where I’m going to retire. I can say this is going to be my final move, and I’m very happy with that knowing that I’m in a Rockford Home.”
Chris   5 Star Review

Sunbury, Ohio

Sunbury was planned from the beginning to be a stagecoach stop. Lawrence Myers, the town’s founder, built an inn near the intersection of two major stagecoach routes (the Old Walhonding Trail and the Delaware Newark Pike), anticipating a large number of stagecoach passengers.

In 1820, the first stagecoach from Mt. Vernon arrived in Sunbury. Famous stagecoach passengers that stopped in Sunbury included:

John Appleseed
Henry Clay
William Henry Harrison
Rutherford B. Hayes

In 1832, Sunbury served as the origin of Ohio’s inaugural railroad line, which carried goods and passengers to nearby communities. The railway later expanded to other parts of the state and beyond. As train transportation gained popularity, the last stagecoach departed from Sunbury in 1873.

Sunbury, OH is located in Delaware County and has a population of around 5,000 people. Sunbury is just 27 miles from Columbus, Ohio. Travel time by car is approximately 29 minutes.
