Beautiful grounds and the home is meticulously restored. We live in the area and have been to many antebellum homes and this ranks near the top. Probably best in the spring when the 25 acre gardens are in full bloom.

After a while, all of the plantations start to feel the same. I was pleased with the Rosedown Plantation. Very well kept, and the tour extremely interesting.

Our guide was excellent and presented us with an outstanding tour. Loved the house, the furnishings, and the view. The grounds were abit disappointing as it looks like they need more funds to keep everything in repair. Consider a donation! This is a lovely treasure...More

The guides enjoy their job & do a great informative presentation, It is definitely worth visiting. We went midweek right after the Natchez pilgrimage and so did not face any big crowds...

St. Francisville, Louisiana, like Natchez in Mississippi and Spring Hill in Tennessee and Charleston in South Carolina and Madison in Georgia, is home to some of the grandest antebellum houses in the South. And one of the grandest of all is Rosedown, an 8,000-square-foot home...More

Very real and informative. A beautiful way to learn about the past and how it really was in the days of slaves and owners. Highly recommend a tour and just wandering through the plantation. A great experience.
