History: Rosemark is an intact representative example of a rural agricultural district in West Tennessee. Known as Richland through the Civil War era, it changed its name to Rosemark when it applied for a post office because there was already a “Richland” in the state. Cotton production dominated the local economy until the 1930s, when agricultural diversification began taking place. Some of the farms that contribute to this district feature extant outbuildings associated with diverse operations – fuel tanks, chicken coop, stock and cotton barn, slaughterhouse, smokehouse, etc. Near the historic district, two wayside exhibit panels were unveiled in April 2021 introducing visitors to the Rosemark-Kerrville Heritage Tour Route, the first such tour route developed by the Rural Heritage Trust of Southwest Tennessee.
