Coming into Rogers from the north
Ohio State Route 7

Rogers had its start in the year 1883 by the building of the PL&W railroad through that territory. It was named for its founder, T. G. Rogers. Rogers was incorporated as a village in 1895.

Mount Hope College

Mount Hope College was an academy in central Rogers, located on Highland Avenue. In 1894, the academy burned, but was rebuilt the same year. Asher A. Galbreath and Charles Burleigh Galbreath bought the academy in 1894. In 1905, the college was changed to a summer school, and later to a public school. The public school, Rogers Area School, served students in grades 1-8. The school was again destroyed by fire in January 1951. The successor schoolhouse, built on Sprucevale Road in southern Rogers, would become the Rogers Elementary School, serving under the Beaver Local School District until demolition in 2015.
