Rose Valley National 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.
