Roselle is a quiet small suburb with lots of community.

History

The area of Roselle began to see American settlers in the 1830’s, when the United States Government was offering land for just $1.25 per acre. In 1837 Deacon Elijah Hough, his wife, daughter Cornelia and sons Oramel and Rosell settled in the Bloomingdale area. Rosell grew up and moved to Chicago and returned to the area at the age of 48. By the time Rosell Hough had returned the area was predominately farm land producing flax and corn. Hough opened the Illinois Linen Company and became the president of the Chicago and Pacific Railroad Company. Rumors say the Rosell used his position at the Railroad Company and his wealth to alter a land survey to have it show that a new railroad line should be built through Roselle. The train schedule made a printing error and printed the name of the new town with an e at the end giving Roselle its current name.

Today Roselle has a station on Metra’s Milwaukee District/West Line providing daily service between Elgin and Chicago Union Station.

Roselle has four main commercial areas, one on the southern border along Lake Street, one in the village center near the historical area of Park Street and one just north of the town center at Main Street Station along the Soo Line Railroad and a fourth on the northern end along Nerge Road.
