Rose Valley Historic District
After nearly three years’ of effort, the Rose Valley Historic District was approved on July 19, 2010 by the U.S. Department of Interior and placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The creation of the Rose Valley Historic District is a national honor in recognition of Rose Valley’s unique historic legacy. The US Department of Interior has recognized Rose Valley as one of the premier arts-and-crafts communities in the United States. We should take great pride in this singular achievement. Our Historic District is a gift to our present and future generations of Rose Valley residents.
The Rose Valley Historic District consists of 123 resources (105 buildings, 7 sites, 10 structures and 1 object (the Minquas Path Historic Marker on Rose Valley Road). A map of these resources can be seen by clicking here (the map is in two pieces, so it is necessary to scroll down to see both parts). Photos of some the the buildings are found at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Rose_Valley,_Pennsylvania.
Our District is not just a collection of old buildings! It’s a testament to:
our unique community spirit,
our values, and
