Take A Tour Inside The Rosedown Plantation

Walk into the Rosedown Plantation’s music room and you may hear the same sound that was played there in the 19th century. The home dates back to 1835. Nestled among moss draped oaks, here your forced to leave the stress behind and soak in history.

Park Manager Trish Aleshire says, “We have about 90% of our original furnishings still left in the home and our tours are wonderful because you get to see all of the rooms. You get to go in all the rooms, walk up close to the furnishings and the antiques, and you can see American 19th century, 1840’s lifestyle like it was in the grand plantar families.”

The home was built by Daniel and Martha Turnbull and at the time sat on 3,600 acres of cotton. Today the home and nearly 400 acres surrounding it belong to the state.

“When this place was restored back in the 1950’s by a lady named Underwood she found, under layers of old paper, a wonderful French scenic paper, but it was in tethers and could not be salvaged, so she went to Paris and they found one that was very similar and they hung it up in the foyer. It actually predates the house. It’s from about 1820,” says Aleshire.

With most antiques in place and intact Rosedown stands out. A true time capsule held back in time. A slice of history welcoming visitors daily.

    Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for

    this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because

    I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.

    I would be awesome if you could point me in

    the direction of a good platform.
