Roser Park is a small residential neighborhood south of downtown and east of Martin Luther King Street which also designated on the National Register of Historic Places. The neighborhood, which developed primarily during the 1910s and 1920s, is oriented around Booker Creek, a major landscape feature that is characterized by narrow green space, steep banks and hilltop setting for residences giving the neighborhood a distinctive topography. Developer C.M. Roser walled the ravine banks along the creek in 1914 and in some places they reach a height of 5 to 6 feet to prevent the banks below the residences from subsiding. Some portions of the walls even remain where houses no longer exist.
