Rose Hill Then and Now
In 1869, J.H. Lowery bestowed the city with its name after relocating to Kansas from his home in Rose Hill, New York. By the time the train depot was established in 1892, many settlements had started to sprout up in this area and businesses were beginning to plant their roots. Early merchants included a meat store, barber shop, grocery store, doctor, school, bank, and the Friend Church. Today, the city has a flourishing educational system with state-of-the-art academic and athletic facilities, as well as a vibrant economy supporting longtime businesses like the Rose Hill Reporter, Louis Cafe, Rose Hill Bank and Midtown Service, to name a few.
