Historical Note

In 1921 the Rosedale Independent School District consisted of two buildings situated about two miles apart, one at Voth and the other at Rosedale. “The School Review of Jefferson County, Texas”, 1921, states the building(s) were inadequate to the needs of the community and a plan was in the process to provide a central building for the school district. In 1921, the children above the fifth grade were sent from Voth to Rosedale and the high school children were sent to Beaumont High School.
