The Rose Place Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places on 27 May 1983. The district consists of a dead-end court one block in length, located less than one block south of the Vine Historic District. The district is bounded by Vine Street, Park Street and Burr Oak Street. Covering 12 acres, the district contains 13 buildings.

In addition to being listed as a national historic district, Rose Place also enjoys local historic district status. The boundaries of the national and local districts are identical.
