Between 1924 and 1972, over 50 000 white Portuguese-speaking immigrants moved to the area, mostly from Portugal, but also from Madeira and Mozambique, which was then a Portuguese colony. After Mozambique gained independence from Portugal in 1976, many more white Mozambicans moved to South Africa, and many of them settled in Rosettenville.
Rosettenville is famously known as a place where the celebrated Anglican school, St Peter's College, where the likes of Oliver Tambo, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Henry Makgothi and others did part of their high school education.
The suburb includes the landmark Wemmer Pan recreational area.
