About Roselawn

Roselawn is a great place to live!  We love our neighborhood and our neighbors.  Roselawn has 348 homes, 3 of its own parks, and is adjacent to 2 of our town parks.  We enjoy many neighborly gatherings  in these parks, from a Winter Carnival with hot cocoa and snow forts to our annual Party in the Park with a fire truck parade, inflatable playscape, and games for the kids.  Roselawn’s favorable location adjacent to Twelve Corners, the heart of modern Brighton, and its convenient sidewalks and streetlights make our neighborhood an ideal place to enjoy the benefits of a walkable community.  Shops, restaurants and the local middle and high schools are only a quick stroll away.

20th Century

Rose Lawn (originally two words) was established in July 1919 with the first lot being sold at 194 St Regis Dr South for $700. Many of our homes, are nearly 100 years old and have the character and charm of a bygone era, but with updates that make them attractive to 21st century residents.

19th Century

Did you know that when you dig in your yard and turn up bricks, you’re holding pieces of Brighton’s past.  Roselawn was a part of the “brick yards,” a thriving industry in the 1800’s.  Rochester Brick and Tile Company stretched along Monroe Avenue from Twelve Corners north to Highland Avenue
