Placed on the National Register of Historic Places 1985
The Mill-Pine neighborhood grew out of a need for housing close to the railroad. The Oregon-California railroad line was completed from Portland to Roseburg in 1872 and on to Ashland in 1884. Aaron Rose, the community's founder then began the development of this neighborhood adjacent to the railroad property. The first, second, third and fourth southern additions to the City of Roseburg were platted between 1887 & 1894.

A large proportion of the Mill-Pine neighborhood residents were associated with the railroad with jobs ranging from wiper to engineer. They serviced the many trains going through Roseburg each day. Other neighborhood residents worked in various occupations in a town made prosperous by the coming of the railroad.

In1927, the railroad regional division point was moved north, and railroad employment in Roseburg dwindled. The neighborhood has remained largely unchanged since that time.
