A little bit of that ‘history:’
Per HistoricRosedale.org, “Rosedale was built in 1815 by Archibald Frew, a merchant, postmaster and tax collector. The home was locally known as “Frew’s Folly” because he spared no expense constructing the plantation that became a jewel of the Carolinas. The extravagant 4600 square foot home once sat on 919 acres. Historic Rosedale Plantation is now the glistening focal point of the plantation’s remaining 8.5 acres. The home was owned and occupied by five generations of the family (Frew, Davidson, Caldwell) (are those names familiar?) until it was sold in 1986.”
A year later, “a 7-year $1 million restoration began through funding of a private foundation.”
With its century old trees, plantings with year-round blooms all set on a scenic plot of 8.5 acres, Rosedale has been busy hosting weddings, corporate events and private parties for years.
