History

Rosedale originated as "The Town of Rosedale, Shawnee Township" in 1872. In 1875 a new population requirement of 600 persons was established to become a "City of the Third Class" in Kansas. A petition was presented to the Honorable Hiram Stevens, Judge of the Tenth Judicial District (Wyandotte, Johnson and Miami counties). The judge issued an order for incorporating the village as a city and election of officers was held August 28, 1877. The new city was named "The City of Rosedale, Kansas."

By 1897 the area known as Rosedale had a population of over 2,000 inhabitants. Rosedale remained an independent city until it was annexed by Kansas City, Kansas in 1922.
