On a recent Saturday, friends of the Rosemark Historic District installed three of the signs designating the boundaries of the district.
Directing the installation was Jon McCalla, chairman of Historic Archives of Rosemark & Environs, Inc., ably assisted by David Glover and Nathan Loeblein. The first sign was installed on the property line between the homes of Gloria Rutter Scharbart and Karl Loeblein, the northern boundary of the district.
The second sign was installed in the yard of 8760 Kerrville-Rosemark Road, known as the Wylie House, the eastern boundary structure in the district. This home is now owned by Richland ARP Church. Following the sign’s installation, hostas donated by Jon and Mary McCalla were planted at the base of the sign.
The third sign was installed in the yard of Shirley Lowe’s home, the southern boundary structure of the district. Mrs. Lowe donated two knock-out roses which were planted at the base of the sign. Enjoying being a part of the installation at Mrs. Lowe’s was Garner Moore of Baton Rouge, Lousisiana, a former resident of Rosemark. Helping to identify the southern boundary line of the district were Steve Glenn and Finley Glenn.
The fourth sign, which will designate the western boundary of the district, will be installed soon.
