Rose Hill Plans Nighttime Event This Weekend

Daniel Prince

Storytelling, bonfire, grounds tour among highlights of the event

Having just hosted a children’s day event this past weekend, Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site shows no signs of slowing down, as they have an evening event scheduled twice in August. It is called Twilight Lore, Bonfire, and More. It will be held this Saturday, August 6, starting at 7 p.m. It will also be held Saturday, August 20, at 7 p.m. Rangers will be telling the tales that enslaved individuals would have shared amongst themselves. The evening will include a ranger-led walking grounds tour, a bonfire with s'mores, and folklore stories.

The walking tour will include hiking over uneven terrain. Rose Hill suggests bringing bug spray and wearing close-toed shoes or boots and clothing appropriate for the weather. Cost is $10 per person, and reservations are required three days prior to the program. Call 427-5966 or email In case of inclement weather, the program may not be held. Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site is located at 2677 Sardis Road. Don’t forget that the bridge on Sardis Road over the Tyger River is closed for repairs, so you will need to detour to come in from the far end of Sardis Road.
