Roseland Cottage

Roseland Golf Course

Bowen sons Herbert, Clarence, and Franklin were avid golfers and founded Roseland Golf Course in 1896 in an old sheep pasture. Fees were kept low to make the game accessible to townspeople. A great-great grandson of Henry and Lucy remembers visiting his Aunt Constance at Roseland Cottage, swimming in the lake at the park, and golfing at the course when he was nine or ten years old. He also remembers the house and grounds, “The big porch, the big croquet field—there was a spaciousness to it.” He’s pictured here, putting at Roseland Golf Course.
