The Rosedown Plantation staff encourage schools to visit our state historic site. The site consists of an 1835 antebellum home filled with original furnishings, 12 historic outbuildings, & 28 acres of historic formal gardens.
If you plan to visit Rosedown with your school group and would like to include a program in addition to the house tour, please make your reservation at least 2-3 weeks in advance. For groups touring the house and gardens, living history demonstrations are available upon request. For groups with 50 or more people, the living history demonstration can be supplemented with a garden tour and/or scavenger hunt, at the discretion of the site staff.
Here is a list of programs that we offer:
19th Century Medical Talk/Demonstration
19th Century Children’s Toys Talk/Demonstration/Town Ball
19th Century Letter Writing/ Calligraphy
Operating Hours: 9-5pm, we give out last tour of the day at 4pm.
House tours: $4.00 per student with 1 adult for every 10 students admitted free. *Note: The house tour takes 35-45 minutes , so please allow sufficient time for everyone in your group to tour. There needs to be 1 adult per every 10 students.
