In 1864, Dr. James and Frannie Rosecrance built a 16-room white house that is now a landmark in New Milford, Illinois. First erected as a clinic for Civil War soldiers, the structure switched focus to youth and families by the late 1800s.[1] The Rosecrances left provisions in their wills to turn the house into the Rosecrance Memorial Home for Children on Aug. 11, 1916.[2] The home operated as an orphanage for boys until the early 1950s.[3]

Rosecrance has grown from serving 12 to 18 boys in 1916 to more than 5,000 families annually (5,422 admissions in fiscal year 2010).[4]

In 1995, Rosecrance opened a $5.3 million, 76-bed adult treatment center in Rockford.[5]

In early 2004, it opened the $14 million, 78-bed, state-of-the-art Rosecrance Griffin Williamson Campus to treat adolescents.[6]

In early 2010, Rosecrance merged with the Janet Wattles Center and its subsidiaries.[4]
