Rose Hall is divided into three wards: Middle Rose Hall, East Rose Hall, and Williamsburg.
Rose Hall is a hub for the surrounding areas where people buy raw materials for clothing and grocery in the Berbice region. Two banks and stores lined the main public roads. Most of the stores are clothing stores and grocery stores. The Welfare Cricket Ground is a cricket ground that formerly held First-Class Cricket matches.
