The Rosewell Foundation has postponed the usual April opening at the site of the historic ruins in Gloucester County due to the coronavirus, said Marilyn Iglesias, foundation secretary.
“While we are disappointed at the delay, we have begun much needed repairs, remodeling and cleaning at the ruins site and the Visitor Center,” Iglesias said.
In the meantime, the foundation is asking public help.
“We are in the process of a remodel and update in our visitor center,” and the foundation hopes to include a wall of early photos of Rosewell, Iglesias said. “They can be of a personal nature such as people connected to the property or on-site, or ones of the magnificent structure itself before it burned in 1916.
