Rosedale is a town in Florida Township, Parke County, in the U.S. state of Indiana. The population was 725 at the 2010 census.

History

When Parke County was established in 1821, Rosedale was the first village in the county, and served as the first county seat. The town was named for Chauncey Rose, a pioneer who settled in this township in 1819. Later the county seat was moved to Armiesburg, and then in 1822 to Rockville (where it remained). The first court session in the county was held in Roseville. The town flourished until 1835 when more business began to be drawn to Rockville.
