In the Dark of the Night

At Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site

Surrounded by forest, with only the stars above you, come out to Rose Hill Plantation and join in on a twilight nature hike followed by a bonfire. Enjoy s’mores as you gaze at the sky, learning about the constellations and how enslaved individuals would use the cover of dark to escape north with only the stars to navigate their way.
