Rose Hill Mansion
3373 State Route 96A, Geneva, NY 14456 - United States
Experience a taste of 19th-century life when you visit Rose Hill Mansion in the beautiful Finger Lakes. Once a working farm, the house and surrounding grounds are open seasonally for guided tours
The guided tour of Rose Hill chronicles the life and times of the Swan family, who lived on the property between 1850 and 1890. Tours will be offered at 10:30, 11;30, 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 and 3: 30.
In the Carriage House Visitor Center and Gift Shop an exhibit highlights the people who lived in the mansion. A restored 1916 Model T that belonged to a descendant of the Swan family is also on display. The grounds are open year-round, free of charge. The Carriage House Gift Shop features historically inspired and locally made items, as well as souvenirs, history books, jewelry, and home decorative items. For a selection of items, see our online shop.
On display in the Tenant Cottage is "One House, Many People." Behind the beautiful façade, hundreds of people have labored to run Rose Hill from the time it was the center of a 1200-acre farm to its recent history as a historic house museum. The nature of the work and the people who do it, has changed over 200 years. One House, Many People chronicles enslaved, paid, and volunteer workers from Rose Hill.
