We are civil war buffs and seeing this old mansion brings all kinds of memories back from school studies and books we have read

We stopped by to view an authentic southern plantation. There are many pluses, but still not what we expected. The home is in a gated community, we came by about an hour early for the tour so we could see the grounds, and were turned away. We returned and found the home without difficulty. Entering, it was beautiful, they were... More

My sister and I love to visit historical homes and this was one of the best we have seen. We had read some of the history of the house before we visited so had background. But the docents were so well informed and shared so much history that you wouldn't need to do that to enjoy your visit to the... More

Gorgeous interior and grounds, interesting 1858 southern home with Gothic European original plan, interesting story of construction halted, how Civil War affected family and house, fire in 1987, and marvelous restoration by current owners who occupy the upper floors. 10,000 square feet, but you tour the first floor only, pretty typical of tours in homes that are in use by...

Very beautiful historical mansion tour. The tour guides were knowledgeable and interesting. There were many historical items to see in the house and the grounds were beautiful. From the wine upon arrival to the tea after the tour, it was a lovely, relaxing afternoon.

My wife and I recently spent a couple of hours touring the Rose Hill Mansion. Built in the 1850's it has recently been totally restored to it's original beauty. The tour was conducted by the great, great granddaughter of the original owner. After the tour we were treated to a delightful tea party along with an opportunity to wander through... More

Enjoyed learning the history of the mansion. The docents, Cynthia and JoAnne, were very well informed and entertained us with stories of the various owners and especially about the latest owners who have brought the mansion to its currently fine state. The first floor only tour lasted about an hour and then we enjoyed a veritable feast of cold salads... More

This was so informative about the Southern Plantation, as being from the North Cynthia did a great job with information on what life was like back in the 1800. We have lived in the South for 3 years gives us a great perspective of what life was like for the South. Plus after the tour you have a Tea Party... More
