We spent a nice day at Rosedale plantation. We took a very informative tour and wandered the flowering gardens. A nice place to visit if you have a little time in Charlotte.

We were there on a Tuesday so the home wasn't available for touring. The grounds were quite nice, though not really that extensive. Azaleas were in bloom and that was probably the highlight of the visit for me.

A treasure in Charlotte on par with Hezikiah Alexander's 1774 home. Restored to 1815 condition with two of the most knowledgable people sharing it's history and ancestors. We began with a short video to introduce the home and property. Well worth the time spent and I have 2 lovely plants started on the plantation. Will come again to see the... More

As one of the earliest homes in Charlotte this is very interesting. The tour guide gave a lot of information on the plantation, its owners and the lives of those who lived here through the years

This plantation comes with the most interesting facts. The tour gives so much insight on the owners and the history of this beauty. This plantation unlike most you hear about has an interesting history. The owner did not plant cotton, tobacco or any other commodities like the others. The owner was a doctor and tax collector. His enslaved person, Nat... More

I have lived in Charlotte almost 30 years and yet had never toured this historic gem. When an opportunity with a friend presented itself, I jumped at it. Fascinating tour of the plantation home with guide Ann Williams. Lots of information about the house, its owners and the broader context of the city (then the village) and events at the... More

Arrived when 3 bus loads of school children had just started a tour, joined one of there groups and went thru the tour. Children were well behaved and tour guides did a great job keeping the children interested.

As a newcomer to Charlotte, this was my first visit to Rosedale. The experience was fantastic. My class of 2nd graders which can be excitable were very attentive as we learned about the herb garden and how it was used for medicinal purposes, school days, and clothing of the era.

The Rosedale Plantation is only 2 miles north of downtown charlotte and offers a view into a working farm of a city doctor from 1815 through the 1980's. The tour group was small, Our docents were well informed and the history is entertaining. To think a property could remain in one family for 165 years is a feat unto itself,... More

What a surprise to find this treasure in the middle of urban Charlotte NC. This large, circa 1815 plantation home has been restored meticulously to its 1830 with furnishings and décor true to the period. The knowledgeable docent will guide you thru life on this subsistence plantation and you will get to know the people who lived here and get... More
