Rosewell opens for season March 29

The Rosewell Ruins and Visitor Center in Gloucester will reopen for the 2024 season on Friday, March 29.

The ruins, managed by the Fairfield Foundation, are open to the public from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Fridays and Saturday, and noon-4 p.m. Sundays, except for Easter, March 31. Admission is $8.

A Fairfield newsletter noted that plans are underway with brick masons to stabilize the ruins in the spring or summer. The 1725 Page family mansion, built in 1725, was destroyed by fire in 1916.

The foundation said stabilization “will benefit all of our members, volunteers, students, and visitors who come to make a tangible connection with this nationally recognized site and to learn about colonial architecture, the Virginia plantation landscape, and the people, both European American and African American, who lived at Rosewell plantation.”

The site is located off Aberdeen Creek Road at 5113 Old Rosewell Lane.
