The rose tree was in full bloom and smelled wonderfully, But more than the tree was the museum section with lots of information of local locations, I really enjoyed all the different implement's of the society back in the 1800.

Was in full bloom when we saw it but was disappointingly small, being a vine over a trallace rather than a big tree.

This is off the main street but well worth the walk a block south to see. Huge rose "tree" that was starting to bloom when we visited.

The rose tree is interesting and takes up about 2000 square feet of courtyard. The have a platform to walk up on to an overview from the top, which is nice...not sure it is worth the $5 per person.
