Christmas Cheer at Rosedown

November 26

Following the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, the Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site staff will begin decorating the 1835 plantation home in an early-to-mid-nineteenth century style, featuring greenery, holly, fruit and nuts on fireplace mantels, chandeliers decorated with holly and mistletoe, evergreen-draped banisters, a decorative display on the dining table, and a tabletop Christmas tree. These festive decorations will be on display throughout the month of December; and just in time for the holidays, the historic gardens are filled with the colors of Christmas. The twenty-eight-acre gardens are naturally ornamented with every shade of red and green from the countless varieties of blooming camellias, assorted varieties of holly, ardisia (Christmas Berry), and other winter friends. Rosedown will also be on display during St. Francisville’s annual Christmas in the Country event December 2–4. Rosedown Historic site is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm, except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. Guided tours of the main house are provided on the hour, beginning at 10 am with the final tour of the day at 4 pm. (225) 635-3110. lastateparks.com.
