The Town of Roland was founded in 1889. It started as a rural farming community and then slowly stared building itself up. As of last census the population was listed as 1037. This was the 2010 census to be exact.
The Town of Rowland has several historic places. The Centenary Methodist Church, the Rowland Main Street Historic District, The Ashpole Presbyterian Church, and the Rowland Depot are all listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

The racial makeup of the Town of Rowland (according to the 2010 census) was 70% Black, 21% White, 6% Native American, and 2% from two or more races.
These stats are different from the census done in the year 2000. That census lists the racial population as 68% Black, 27% White, 4% Native American, and 1% of two or more races.
While these stats are different, which shows some activity in the Town of Roland, they are not that different. It seems that the Town of Roland is relatively stable in its racial makeup stats.

The listed median age was 38 years old. As far as the sexes go there are many more females than males. There are only 80 males for every 100 females. If you are only counting females age 18 and over there were only about 70 males over 18.
This concludes a brief oversight of the Town of Rowland.
