The Rosewood neighborhood story begins when on April 25, 1925 9.23 acres of land was sold by Ott Realty for $10,153.00.

The deed describes the property as surrounded to the north by Sims property, D.B. and W.P Ott property to the east and south and Ott Road to the west. A new school was needed to relieve the overcrowding at Heathwood and Rose Hill Schools. According to a 1926 article in The State newspaper the area around the school was already being referred to as Rosewood From the late 1920’s until after World War II Rosewood experienced many of the changes we see and live with today. Of course, the big neighborhood story was the opening of Rosewood Shopping Center in 1954.

In 1992 city councilperson Ann Sinclair began to voice concerns and fought for redevelopment of the Rosewood neighborhood. In 1996 Owens Field Park, the city's first regional park opened. A year of impressive growth was 2002 when the new First Citizens Bank, Rockaways and Publix reestablished Rosewood as a neighborhood friendly business district. With the addition of City Roots and the Southern Vista the Rosewood community has become a self- contained community where residents walk and bike to the grocery store, bank, drug store and restaurants.

New neighborhood festivals like the Rosewood Crawfish Fest and the Krewe de Columbi Ya-Ya Mardi Gras Festival have brought a revival of pride to the Rosewood neighborhood.
