Roseland History:


Burlington’s Roseland community was first developed in 1925. A local real estate add boasted “These homes and many more, all equally fine, are now occupied by as affine a type of residents as any man could fine for his neighbours. Many of them are Hamilton business men- all take a true pride in their homes.”

Just a boat ride away from Hamilton, it became an attractive area for businessmen. Many homes, like the one belonging to Reverend Dr. Thomas Greene and his wife, had long driveways lined with pines. Mrs. Greene brought seedlings of her prized roses with her from Ireland and as they began to flourish, they became well known and inspired the area’s name: Roseland.
