The History of Rogersville

Rogersville got its start thanks to a man known as Dr. Rogers, a physician in the area. When the Kansas City and Memphis Railroad was to have a depot built, Dr. Rogers donated money to its construction to have it named for him. From there, Rogersville grew into the settlement that would lay the foundation for the town as we know it. Its first postmaster was appointed in 1882. A blacksmith shop opened in 1884. A church followed on year later, and the Citizens Bank of Rogersville opened in 1908. Despite the fact that the school district is referred to as “Logan-Rogersville,” there is, in fact, no area nearby called Logan. That name belongs to a family who donated the land for the school to be built in 1955.
