Rose Hill was settled as early as 1825 and is located in the northeast corner or Covington County. In 1866 when Crenshaw county was formed, the community of Rose Hill was divided by the county line. The community on the Covington County side retained the name of Rose Hill and is still know as that today.

Check out this site for a story about Rose Hill & how it received it's name:
