Originally named Rose Hill, Lauderdale was part of the larger Rose Township, named after trader Isaac Rose. Rose Township included parts of what are now Roseville, Falcon Heights, Minneapolis, Saint Paul, Saint Anthony Village and Lauderdale. In 1871, Rose Hill’s first school opened when Herman Gibbs of Gibbs Farm Museum fame donated the land for the school.
The Village of Lauderdale was incorporated on January 21, 1949. It was named after William Henry Lauderdale, a prominent Twin Cities businessman who donated land to Rose Hill Township for a school and park.
