Roselle Village Hall is located at 31 South Prospect Street, Roselle, IL 60172; phone: 630-980-2000.
The village was first platted about 1874. It was a part of Bloomingdale Village when incorporated in 1889. Differences led Roselle to incorporate as its own village in 1922. From 1970 to 2000 the village population grew from 6,200 to more than 23,000, largely due to the development of single- and multi-family residential subdivisions. It's distance from the Chicago Loop (24 miles) has turned it into a commuting, bedroom community for that city.
The village is probably named for Rosell Hough. Hough arrived in the area as a 16-year-old accompanying his parents and siblings in 1836. He went on to gain political and commercial clout in greater Chicago, first in the meat-packing business, and, subsequently as the first president of the Chicago Chamber of Commerce, founder of the Illinois Linen Company, and president of the Chicago and Pacific Railroad Company.
