Rick Erwin Media’S one hour documentary “Going Rolling” is a unique look at the town of Rolling Prairie, it’s history and people that lived, thrived and prospered during the town’s heydays between 1920 and 1960 when this sleepy little town’s main road, U.S. Route Twenty ran right through the downtown district from Chicago to New York City. At one time Rolling Prairie had three grocery stores, thirteen gas stations and a world class restaurant, The Peacock Fountain Inn that served travelers such as Bob Hope and Clark Gable. Just passing through with a camera, Erwin talked and filmed many of the town’s residents who still remembered the 1920’s, the great depression and a simpler life as folks moved throughout the region on their cracky wagons.
