Roselle is located in the Northeast of the state and was founded in 1922. Residents commuted mostly to Chicago and the nearby suburbs for their work. In 1908, the Milk Dealers Association had a train that carried 6,000 people to and from Chicago, and the village was the best place in Illinois to start a family.
Seeking agricultural opportunities, Hough founded the Illinois Linen Company, which produced ropes and lines, and used his financial and political clout to divert his land. The success of this deal allowed Roselle to convince the Chicago and Pacific Railroad Company to cross its borders. Although this was lucrative in some respects, he began to examine the prospects of other businesses and founded Illinois Linen and Company. He also built a large flax factory to produce ropes and ropes, and moulded it into one of the largest textile factories in Illinois, with a capacity of 1.5 million pounds per year.
He bought land on which flax could be grown and discovered that Roselle was a thriving centre of a rich farming district. He bought more than 1,000 acres of land in the area, most of it on the west side of the river.
He then settled in Cheyenne, Wyoming, where Hough owned a cattle company and land, and stayed in Roselle until he sold his shares in the area. He then drove south and drove back to Hattendorf's Rosle store on RoseLle - Bloomingdale Road. From Meacham Nerge he traveled south to Bloomingley Township, where he changed horses and then traveled north along the Indiana side of the Illinois River.
He worked in Roselle until 1850 when he opened a meat packing shop with two brothers in RoseLle - Bloomingdale Road. Hough hired former Chicago convicts and rogues as labourers and built a hotel called aBeehivea to house them. A Chicago businessman who bought the property turned the building into a brick and tile company. Three years later, in early 1905, Mr. Vaas began to set up his own meat packaging business in the area.
Illinois Linen Company was established in 1905 at what is now Roselle Road and Irving Park Road, near the RoseLle - Bloomingdale Road intersection. In 1905, Illinois Linen opened on the east side of the Chicago River, at the corner of Chicago Avenue and the north end of what is now Rose Street. The Illinois LINEN Company was established in 1906 on the eastern half of Illinois Avenue, between Chicago Avenue and the present west end of Roscoe Street and Rose Lle Rd.

The Gables of Roselle is located on Lake Street, and Main Street Station is located on the corner of West Michigan Avenue and Irving Park Road. Chicago and Pacific station was named after RoseLle and its first president, Chicago Pacific.
The area around the present village of Roselle began to settle when settlers moved in alongside the indigenous Potawatomi peoples. In the area, single and multi-family houses were developed, which also helped to bring a small industry to the area. After both world wars RoseLle began to grow rapidly and was settled at the end of the 19th century and at the beginning of the Second World War. The area around the current village of Rosalie, Illinois, the first settlement in Chicago County, began to be settled around the same time as the original Chicago settlement and Chicago Pacific Railroad Station in 1855, when the settlers moved in alongside a native Potaw tribe. In the early 20th century, after the first settlement by the Illinois Pacific Railway Station at Lake Street and Irving Park Road, it was settled near the Chicago River.
