CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Only minutes from the center of Charlotte, near the entrance to NoDa, you’ll find the Historic Rosedale Plantation.

It was built in 1815 by Archibald Few, who was a postmaster, merchant, and tax collector!  At the time it was built, the 4600 square foot home sat on 919 acres of land.

The beautiful home is now the focal point of the plantation’s remaining 8.5 acres.  After a seven year one million dollar restoration. It’s open to everyone to visit. 
 

The restoration, furnishing, and work continues at Rosedale--which is actually a great example of the Federal period architecture in North Carolina.  The trees and gardens are as popular as the house for visitors to see.

This morning on Larry’s Look, we had a great tour of Rosedale Plantation---including a guided tour of their wedding garden and the “tree museum."
