Christmas at Rose Hill

At Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site

Travel back in time with a Victorian-style Christmas at Rose Hill Plantation. Find out how Gov. Gist's family, enslaved individuals, and later freedmen families celebrated the holidays on the plantation. Special holiday focused tours of the mansion will be offered, and visitors can enjoy refreshments in the historic kitchen house. Warm your hands by the fire and craft your own decoration to take home with you! Tours will begin each day at 1 pm and run on the half hour through 4 pm. On Sunday there will be a special appearance by Father Christmas. Bring the whole family out to enjoy!
