The grounds of the Rose Mansion offer a mini tour of early Texas dwellings. Texas markers and one National Register marker attest to the authenticity of the Mansion, two beautifully restored log cabins, a summer kitchen cottage and a larger Greek Revival cottage.
The main home, built in 1870 by Major A.J. Rose, has four bedrooms (three have fireplaces), a grand parlor, an elegant dining room and a cozy country kitchen. Rose family memorabilia and antiques can be found throughout the home.
A windmill with a cypress storage tank, a rock smoke house and an old wagon are nostalgic remainders of the past. Shaded seating areas and swings located across the grounds compliments these accommodations.
No wonder the Mansion has been featured in issues of Southern Living magazine!
