Rose City Welcome Sign

  • Rose City is located in Ogemaw County in the northeastern section of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Rose City is located midway between West Branch, Ogemaw County seat, and Mio, Oscoda County seat, and midway betwwen Hale & St. Helen.
  • Rose City began as the town of Churchill in 1875, when Allen S. Rose moved to Michigan from New York and built a general store. When the railroad came through in 1892, it was renamed Rose City for the founder, though it wasn’t incorporated as a city until 1905.
  • Rose City is supported by some small businesses and manufacturing facilities (particularly plastics, machinery and auto parts production), but has survived over the years primarily as a result of tourism and the attraction of the many lakes and streams in the scenic surrounding area. Wikipedia
