I have had various activities held at Rose Lawn and always enjoyed each one. We gave a beautiful baby shower this weekend at the Carriage House at Rose Lawn. It was just perfect, rustic and classy all at the same time. The staff, Jane and Catrina, are awesome!!!

The sweet young lady that took us around the museum was so friendly and knowledgable. She really made the history of Sam Jones, his place and times come to life. Most enjoyable. It was my second time through and I enjoyed it just as much.
