Rose Hill Plans Hike Highlighting the African American Experience

Daniel Prince

Program is free and open to the public

If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site has a Saturday morning event that may be of interest. The rangers at Rose Hill will lead a one-mile hike through the woods to learn about the African American experience.

While on the hike, you can see the preserved ruins of historic structures, old roadbeds, witness trees, and spring sites used by ancestors who were enslaved on the plantation and descendants who later sharecropped there. Along the way, the rangers will tell stories that reveal more about the lives of all who lived there.

The hike will go from 9:30-11 a.m. this Saturday, February 5. The program is free and open to the public. Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site is located at 2677 Sardis Road in Union.
