In the 1830s, settlers from all over the country began to move to the Chicago area. In those days, it was inhabited by the Potawatomi Native Americans, who live peaceably among the settlers. One of the pioneers most responsible for the establishment of Roselle was a man by the name of Elijah Hough. Hough moved to the area in 1836 with his wife Electa, daughter Cornelia, and two sons, Oramel and Roselle. In those days, what is now known as present-day Roselle was actually a part of Bloomingdale. By 1864, Hough was a Colonel in the Union Army and had been elected the first president of the Chicago Chamber of Commerce. In 1865, he founded the Union Stock Yards and retired from working his meat pack business. It was at this time that he moved back to the Bloomingdale area and found that many things had changed since the Civil War, which had ruined the cotton trade. Now instead of cotton, flax was being used to make cloth - and there was plenty of it in DuPage County. Therefore, Hough began farming flax on land he had bought over the years. With the growth of his company, he needed an all-weather road going to Chicago, so with his power and wealth, he built one and was able to acquire a large portion of Bloomingdale, which became Roselle, named for his son.
