About this community

Rosetown, situated in Saskatchewan, lies at the intersection of provincial Highway 7 and Highway 4, approximately 115 kilometers southwest of Saskatoon.

The town's moniker, "The Heart of the Wheat Belt," aptly reflects its rich agricultural heritage.

In 1905, James and Anne Rose migrated from Lancashire, England, becoming the first settlers in what is now Rosetown. Two years later, in 1907, a group from the area sought to establish a post office. To honor the town's pioneering settlers, the Roses, the group proposed the name "Rosetown" for the post office. With "Rose" already in use, the addition of "town" created the distinctive name. The post office commenced operations on September 7, 1907.

Following the establishment of a Jewish colony near Rosetown after 1906, the town continued to grow.

Rosetown attained village status on August 29, 1909, when Wilrod Bifair sold his homestead to the Canadian Northern Railway. Village designation was formalized on August 4, 1909, once the population reached 500 residents.

As of 2021, Rosetown boasted a population of 2,507 individuals residing in 1,112 of its 1,224 total private dwellings.
