It was built in 1793 by Revolutionary War Colonel Uriah Forrest, thus making it the oldest home in Cleveland Park. A small stone cottage constructed in 1740 was incorporated into the house. Rosedale was owned by Forrest descendents until 1920. In 1920, it was purchased by Avery Coonley, owner of Frank Lloyd Wright's Coonley House in Riverside, Illinois.
The house was rented to the Undersecretary of State, William Phillips in 1933, and to John N. Irwin, II in 1959. It was a faculty residence for the National Cathedral School. In 1977, the youth exchange organization Youth For Understanding bought the premises. YFU sold Rosedale to The Rosedale Conservancy, a local trust, in 2002.
