Welcome to Rose City, Michigan

Rose City, Michigan is located on M-33 in northern Ogemaw County. The county is named after the Indian title “chief” which in Chippewa is pronounced: “Ogema.” The land was originally platted in 1840. The county was organized in 1875, when the first settlers arrived near Ogemaw Springs and set up a lumber mill.

Rose City began in 1875 when Allen S. Rose moved here from New York and built a general store. The town was originally named Churchill, until 1892 when the railroad came through and it was renamed Rose City. It was incorporated into a city in 1905. This city has survived over the years as a result of tourism and its location to so many lakes and streams in the scenic surrounding area, including Houghton Creek, which runs through town. Other prominent cities in Ogemaw County: Prescott and West Branch.
