Rose Hill Manor was built in the 1790's by John and Anne Grahame. Originally known as Rose Garden, the property was renamed Rose Hill by Gov. Thomas Johnson in 1778.
The Children’s Museum of Rose Hill Manor opened its doors in 1972, providing a hands-on learning approach to history. The Museum focuses on providing children opportunities to experience life in early America from learning to card wool, to grating spices, to playing with toys from the past, as well as the history of agriculture and transportation in Frederick County.
The Mission of Rose Hill Manor Park and Museums is to preserve and present the living heritage of the property from 1746-1950.
The property features a manor house, icehouse, log cabin, blacksmith shop, carriage collection, and two barns. Look up more information about Manor Tours.
