But long before that ranking, the nearly 36 square miles of land that constitute modern-day Rosemount were under a the terminal moraine of a glacier, or the farthest point a glacier reached. As a result, the northern part of the city has abundant pothole ponds, while the southern part is a part of the glacial flood plain and once was a treeless prairie. Once settlement occurred, it didn’t take long for the new residents to realize opportunities for farming abounded. Those first settlers were from Ireland, and the settlers who followed them were largely Irish, too. And one needn’t look too hard to realize the Irish tradition remains alive and well in Rosemount – there’s a shamrock on the city flag, the nickname of the high school teams is the Irish, and the city’s annual community festival is called Leprechaun Days.

The 1990s and 2000s were decades of growth for Rosemount, which had a population of 22,490 people in 2014. The city is forecasted to add nearly 16,000 people by 2040, and planning for that sort of population expansion already is under way. Development has been on the upswing in the city in recent years, and 84 detached single-family homes, three townhome units, and 92 multifamily housing units were permitted in 2014. That’s the highest total since 2008. A number of residential developments are at various stages of completion and will add many new homes to the city’s housing supply. Most of the city’s residential area is in its western side.

Agriculture and agriculture research remain important aspects of Rosemount, which has nearly 9,000 acres of agricultural land. At the same time, there are a variety of industries in the city, which has set aside 500 acres zoned for industrial and commercial development. The city’s downtown includes plenty of shopping options, as well as a diverse blend of dining options ranging from fast food at McDonalds to Celts Irish Pub and Grill to Morning Glory’s Bakery Cafe. Redevelopment of the downtown area is under way, guided by a development framework approved in 2004.

City planners also have taken into account the need for open spaces, and Rosemount includes 23 parks that total 302 acres. In addition, the city includes 270 acres of the Spring Lake Park Preserve, which provides activities including hiking and snowshoeing, as well as stunning views of the Mississippi River. Some parts of the park are reminiscent of what people would experience in northern Minnesota.

But what really sets apart Rosemount is how it has maintained its small-town character despite its continuous growth and development. The annual Leprechaun Days celebration, which spans 10 days during the summer and is organized by volunteers, pulls together the entire community for games, parades and a carnival. The city’s residents also banded together for four years in the early 2000s to host the USA Broomball National Championships, the only time a community has been tabbed on multiple occasions to host the event.
