“A trip back in time”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

Our costumed docent gave us an interesting and informative look into the lives of the families that lived in this house over the years. The house is in very good condition and is furnished well. There are several outbuildings on the pretty grounds, including an ice house, blacksmith's shop, small log cabin and a modern building filled with gorgeous, restored carriages and sleighs. The admission price is minimal and well worth it.

“Good place for the little ones to see the past”
Reviewed 27 July 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”
Reviewed 26 June 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!”
Reviewed 9 February 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.
