Join in this summer for a special tour, A Taste of Rose Hill. This tour will focus on the history of food and food production at Rose Hill Mansion between 1850 and 1890. This special tour is not the same as the regular tour.
On the tour, visitors will learn how the Swan family produced different types of foods on their farm and how food was preserved, prepared and presented at their table. You will explore how these processes shifted over the 19th century as elements of food production, preservation, and preparation were mechanized and standards of presentation rose. The tour will include samples of the scents and tastes of 19th-century style foods.
