Rock County

Rock County is a county in Southwest Wisconsin. It is the ninth largest county in terms of population and is known primarily for the cities of Janesville and Beloit.



Rock County is one of the older counties in Wisconsin having developed around the Rock River, the region's first major economic driver. Beloit and Janesville, both located directly on the river, continue to be major regional economic centers and have the vast majority of shopping and entertainment in the county. Culturally, it is comparable to neighboring Winnebago County to the south.
