ROSEMOUNT NEIGHBOURS
UNTIL ST.JOSEPH WAS JOINED WITH RAYMOND, ROSEMOUNT BLVD WAS EXTENDED THRU QUARRIES AND FIELDS, ADDITIONAL TUNNELS(UNDERPASSES) AND ROADS WERE BUILT, ROSEMOUNT WAS FAIRLY ISOLATED. THE SOUTHWEST BORDER WITH THE PLATEAU FEATURED A STRING OF SLAUGHTER HOUSES(MAINLY ON IBERVILLE SOUTH OF THE TUNNEL) AND MEAT PROCESSING PLANTS. FORTUNATELY THE WINDS BLEW  AWAY FROM ROSEMOUNT.
