In December 1903, B. R. (Ben) Eide and Anne Eide sold to the town of Clough (to the Scandinavian Cemetery Association) an area of land for a cemetery for the sum of one dollar. The name recorded then was Roselund Cemetery and it has now become Roseland Cemetery. The land was provided via Quit Claim Deed Record No. 33 dated December 2, 1903.
The cemetery is located in the very northwest corner of SW1/4 Section 30 Township 131 North Range 30 West. The deed gave the cemetery dimensions as 16 rods (264 feet) by 10 rods (165 feet) for an area of 43,560 square feet which is one acre. County Road 206 runs along the west side of the cemetery with a standard two rod right of way from the county road centerline (section line) thus, the cemetery dimension becomes 14 rods (231 feet) by 10 rods (165 feet) for an area of 38,115 square feet which is 0.88 of an acre. The cemetery was laid out as Scandinavian Cemetery of Roseland with 16 blocks and a total of 80 plots.
