Christmas at Rosedown

Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site will be ringing in the Christmas season on December 19 and 20, with the seventh annual “Christmas at Rosedown” event.  Throughout the weekend, visitors will see the Main House decorated in nineteenth-century style as site staff relate stories of Christmas traditions at Rosedown that were passed down through the Turnbull and Bowman families.  Each day, costumed living history presenters from around the area will be displaying numerous 19th century crafts demonstrations and activities.  Among the demonstrations scheduled for this season’s celebration will be down-hearth cooking, candlemaking, spinning, quilting, medical arts and basket weaving.  Also featured will be period dancers, musicians and carolers.  In addition, children of all ages can enjoy hayrides and have a photo taken with “Father Christmas.”  Each day’s activities will culminate with a marshmallow roast.  As a special gift to visitors, garden admission is free, and fees for the main house are being reduced to $5 for the “Christmas at Rosedown” event.  The site will be open between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm.  For more information, call 225-635-3332.
