Formed from portions of Union Township, Roselle Park was incorporated as a borough in 1901. The borough is bordered by Union Township, Roselle, Kenilworth, Elizabeth, and Cranford. The area was settled in 1700 by Samuel Williams, and Galloping Hill Road, in Roselle Park, was used frequently by Revolutionary War scouts delivering messages to and from General George Washington, and it is also believed to have been the route taken by British troops en route to the Battle of Connecticut Farms, who were battling with the New Jersey militia the entire way.
