Spending one February afternoon in Charlotte, NC, we decided to visit the Historic Rosedale Plantation. I did not take pictures inside, just in the gardens.
The tour through the house was 1 1/2 hours of interesting history of the families living in this 13 room antebellum plantation home. Archibald Frew built the house on his 900 acre plantation in 1815, flaunting his wealth with white paint, Parisian yellow trim and wallpaper imported from France.
The garden is charming, even this time of year, and I can only imagine how beautiful it is when the growing season starts.
The Kitchen Garden
The garden paths are bordered by boxwood, with some of them still alive from the first planting in 1815
Beautiful, large Camellia shrubs
It's truly a gem worth discovering!
