Every year in fall, people spent an entertaining afternoon on the lawn surrounding the historic ruins of one of Colonial America's grandest mansions. Enjoying the barbecue feast, pleasing music and a wonderful silent auction, exalts the imagination of the outstanding lifestyle that was lived by three generations of the Page family. Thomas Jefferson was a frequent guest at the mansion along with many historic personalities who shaped our country. The annual barbecue is the largest fundraiser to support the expenses associated with maintaining the Rosewell Ruins preserving the historic site for future generations. Local businesses as well as many individuals and families help make this possible with their donations.
The Rosewell Foundation is looking forward to host all these history interested parties joining year by year or being new to the historic site and searching for more information about. Whatever the relationship to Rosewell is, the event will relive a day in history in everybody's mind.
