For many years Rosedalians have entrusted their yearbooks and photographs to Rosedale Development Association. Now, RDA has launched rosedalehistory.org to share those memories with the wider community.
Funded by a generous grant from the Kansas Historical Society, the website features an array of photographs and artifacts. Included in the website are six digitized Mount Marty High School yearbooks from 1908 to 1939, a photo book from the American Legion during the 1940s-1950s, black and white photographs featuring Rosedale schools and landmarks, and artifacts from Rosedale historic businesses.
Soon we will be posting a number of truly unique photographs of Rosedale from the Wyandotte County History Museum collection that range from a photograph of the Sauer women from the 1890s to the Rosedale Birney car of the 1940s. You can expect to see exciting new material on the website as it continues to evolve.
But we need your help!
If you have, or know someone who has, historic photographs, artifacts, or stories, please contact us at 913-677-5097 or email email@example.com, so that we can archive our history and share it with others on the Rosedale Community Archive website.
