Visit an old cotton plantation dating back to the 1800s.

The Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site is located off of U.S. Highway 61. Construction of the plantation was completed in 1835. Daniel and Martha Turnbull owned the land and mansion and were one of the wealthiest families in the area during the 19th century. Many of the original furnishings are on display inside the home. The Turnbull's had their honeymoon in Europe, which influenced the idea to create formal gardens just outside Rosedown, a favorite place that Martha enjoyed. In 1956, the plantation was first sold and restored through the efforts of Catherine Fonden and others. Along with the main home, there are 13 historic buildings to see at this historic site. Rosedown has been on the national historic landmark list since 2005.

You can visit this historic site daily from 9 am to 5 pm. It is only closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Admission rates vary depending on if you want to see the grounds only or the house and the grounds. Children ages three and younger have free admission. Guided tours are provided for those wishing to see the main house during their visit. During the tour, you will learn about the people who worked at Rosedown and some of the Turnbull family traditions.
