Contact Information

Named for the pioneer doctor and philanthropist who formerly owned the property. His estate was given to LaGrange upon his death to start an orphanage. The former Rogers Children's Home is the large brick house north of the park. To honor him and his gift, this land was set aside as the first LaGrange county park. Dr. Rogers grave and monument are located in the center of the park. Following the historic roots of the land, Rogers Park was developed with a pioneer theme. There are six authentic pioneer log buildings relocated here. At the end of August, this park hosts the David Rogers Festival, a living history celebration of 1845.
