Rose Hill

Rose Hill

Rose Hill is a quaint community which has, according to the most recent census, 168 people, 72 households, and 47 families residing in the city. It is home to the Rose Hill Methodist Episcopal Church, a frame building which was built in 1879 in the Gothic Revival style. It is the only 19th-century church building that remains in its original location in town. The pointed arch windows are all at 45 degree angels, which shows the limited carpentry experience of the church members who built the structure. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.
