Rosenort was discovered by Heinrich Ratzlaff, the first Mayor of Rosenort in the late 1800s. Ratzlaff wrote on a tree “it is good to be here, let us build our home”, and built they were. Well-built homes, fine gardens and finely tendered farms defined the thriving community.
The Credit Union and Co-op reflect the value of sharing, while the churches speak for the importance of spirituality. Rosenort is especially known for its accomplishments in the industrial sector. Businesses such as Westfield, K-Tec, Duracon, Prairie Welding, Dirt Pro, Midland Manufacturing, Novid and many more.
