The public school, Rogers Area School, served students in grades 1-8. The school was again destroyed by fire in January 1951. The successor schoolhouse, built on Sprucevale Road in southern Rogers, would become the Rogers Elementary School, serving under the Beaver Local School District until demolition in 2015.[9]

Since 1955, Rogers has been home to Rogers Community Auction and Flea Market. One of the largest flea markets in Ohio, it is an open-air market held year-round, sitting on 250 acres (1,000,000 m2) of land.[7] The market has an assortment of vendors including produce, clothing, novelties, and antiques. The market has more than 1,600 vendors' spaces, 350 of which are covered; no admission fee; and more than 70 acres (280,000 m2) of free parking. It is located off Ohio State Route 154, with access also available from Ohio State Route 7.

Weekly events include the weekly Friday flea market, with auctions of household items, antiques, farm fresh produce and livestock. Hays and grains are auctioned on Wednesdays, and the second Tuesday of each month is reserved for the equipment/consignment auction.[12]

On July 25, 2014, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement raided more than one dozen vendors at the flea market for selling counterfeit consumer goods. The merchandise seized was worth over US$500,000.[13] The sale of counterfeit goods violated the flea market's policies.[7] The flea market resumed normal business on August 8.[7]

On September 18, 2019, hay barrels inside a pavilon at the flea market caught fire and ingulfed the entire structure within minutes.[14]
