The Community of Roosevelt began with the establishment of a post office in 1898. Although Alice Wagner applied for the post office with another name, the postal service in Washington substituted the name Roosevelt, presumably in honor of Theodore Roosevelt, whose rough riders visited this area prior to their legendary Spanish-American war service. Two military roads traversed this area, and Roosevelt became a social center for surrounding ranch families. In addition to the post office, Roosevelt included a Masonic lodge, churches, stores and a school
The Roosevelt Post Office today offers all postal services in addition to post office boxes, FedEx and UPS shipping.
