Mansion by Moonlight

At Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site

What is it like to be inside the Gist Mansion after hours? Come find out as we explore nighttime life on a cotton plantation in the 1800s. We’ll discover- through sound, sight, smell, touch, taste and motion - evening activities of both the plantation owner’s family and the enslaved people who lived at Rose Hill Plantation. Lighting will be limited and the ground is slightly uneven. Comfortable clothes and shoes are recommended. Space limited to 16. Reservations are required.
