We Thank You for visiting!
The Cherokee Rose Trading Post is named in Honor of the history of the area and is located in ROSHARON, TEXAS at the intersection of Farm roads 521 and 1462 The area was settled before the Civil War by cotton and sugar planters and probably had no name until 1859, when the Columbia Tap Railroad was completed and a stop at this intersection was named Masterson's Station for the owner of a nearby plantation. It was also known locally as Buttermilk Station because an early resident frequently brought a bucket of buttermilk and a dipper to the stop to treat the crew to a drink.
About 1900 George Wetmore Colles, Jr., along with his wife Sharon, bought property near the site. He called his place, and later the town, the Rose of Sharon Garden Ranch after his wife and because of the Cherokee roses that grew wild in the area. The town's name was later shortened to Rosharon. Mr. Colles obtained a post office in 1912 and also designed the community water system.
