Roselawn, located in the northeastern corner of Newton County, is located at the busy crossroads of Interstate 65 and State Road 10. Rose Lawn, as it was originally spelled, was laid out in 1882, and derived its name from two local businessmen, Orlando "Rose" of Missouri and "Lon" Craig of Winamac. The name was officially changed to Roselawn in 1893.
