Rosewell Foundation, Inc. Overview
Programs: Stabilization of the historic ruin through repair of brick masonry joints and conservation of stonework is the most critical activity of the Rosewell Foundation. The Foundation also pursues documentary and archaeological research to better understand plantation life, and shares the resulting knowledge with the public through tours, exhibits, and educational programs. Students from the primary grades through the university level can explore topics pertinent to their studies. The Rosewell Foundation Visitor Center is open 360 days a year and features an orientation exhibit and archaeology lab. Annual special events include the fall "Barbecue at the Ruins" with traditional food and bluegrass music, and the spring "Secret Gardens Tour", featuring undiscovered local gardens.
