    Rosen Heights

    Shown: Portion of Rosen Heights Ledger, 1917

    Summary:  Rosen Heights Land Company was founded by Russian immigrant Sam Rosen in 1902. Sam Rosen (b. 1868–1932) worked in Fort Worth as a traveling salesman and ran a dry goods store prior to purchasing land in North Fort Worth west of the Stockyards. The vision for his new development was to build a community for the workers of the newly founded Swift and Armour meat packing plants. He additionally began the Fort Worth and Rosen Heights Street Railway Company to connect his new development with downtown Fort Worth.  Sons Joel and Ephraim continued the Land Company, which remained in the family for generations following. Sam Rosen donated land to several churches and Sam Rosen Elementary School.  He reportedly never foreclosed on any of the homes built on his land.
