The Rosengard School District was established in April 1927 and a one-room schoolhouse operated at NE12-6-5E in the Rural Municipality of Hanover. In 1968, the district was dissolved and its area became part of the Hanover School Division. In 2013, a commemorative sign was erected at the site by the EastMenn Historical Society.
