“Good place for the little ones to see the past”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

When my three girls were small, I took them to Rose Hill on more than one occasion. It is such an accurate representation of how homes were lived in, how food was cooked, etc. It really opens their eyes to the past.

“A Real Plantation in Frederick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

We visited twice, last year and year before and both times it was an interesting and educational experience. The house and gardens, as well as outbuildings are open to the public and there are costumed docents who conduct the tours. The price is right, at about $5 or $6 for adults. This is a lovely way to spend a weekend afternoon.

“Grandkids loved it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

When I first saw the dacility I thought the grandkids (ages 10 and 8) would be bored. But they really enjoyed themselves for about 2 hours.hey were fascinated to see how children lived generations ago. The staff were exceptional. Theuir enthusiasn and interest was a major contributor to the successful visit.
