Roscoe the Rooster

ROSCOE THE ROOSTER

Roscoe was the community’s beloved rooster that wandered the streets of Takoma in the 1990’s. Roscoe was a free spirit that defied the authorities and found sanctuary with business owners and residents alike.  Emblematic of the community in which he lived, this famous fowl was memorialized in a bronze sculpture that can be found on Laurel Avenue today.
