History: 

Rosenberg was founded in 1847 by colonists from Grimm, Balzer, Dreispitz, Shcherbakovka, Stephan, Holstein, and Galka. In 1865, 104 colonists moved to the Kuban. Emigration to America began in 1877 when 37 colonists left. In 1886-87, an additional 184 colonists departed for America. Today Rosenberg is known as Umet.

Rosenberg was the ancestral home of Pastor Nathanael Woldemar Heptner (1862-1933) and chemist A.G. Horst (1889-1981).

Church: 

The Lutheran parish in Rosenberg was established in 1859 and served as the residence for the pastor who also served the congregations in Oberdorf and Erlenbach. The church in Rosenberg no longer exists.
