After reading the reviews (although dated) we expected to see a home with well cared for grounds and a centerpiece for historic homes. Not the case, the grounds need a lot of work and seem to have been given less attention than in the past. We just missed the noon one hour tour so we can't comment on the interior... More

Reservations are required and it sells out very quickly, as the tea is only offered one Saturday in October. In addition to the tea, you can also get... More

If you enjoy visiting historic sites, this is a very nice place to visit in the historic section of old Eau Gallie (part of Melbourne, FL).

My movie group was using the Rossetter House in a movie they were filming, so I had access to photographing various areas of the property as well. There are 2 houses to the estate, with the office being across the street from the main house. The interesting part of the main house is how it is connected to the rear... More

My daughter and I decided to learn a little about the place she was born. We stumbled across the Rossetter House by accident. It was a neat little tour about an interesting family. Don't miss seeing the car in the garage and the history/story behind it.

Whether you live in or are just visiting Melbourne, Florida, the Historic Rossetter House Museum and Gardens are a must see! As you wander through the cemetery and approach the Rossetter house, you get a sense of the great history of the area and the people who struggled to make this area what it is today. Although the second story... More
