If you've come all this way, you might as well stop here. The best part is Rose Cottage. Afterwards, we went looking for the grave and marker of its former owner in the city cemetery.

Go to Tourist Center and get the audio walking tour on a lovely day. We spent most of our time outside rather than entering each building but listened to the audio for each location. Beautiful old fashioned Southern venue near Atlanta.

It was recommended we visit Heritage Hall first, then these two houses, in order to understand the strata of society in 19th century Madison. That was good advice. This tour was oess detailed and took about 30 minutes total, but it rounded out the picture.

Nice tour with a personal touch. Good look at how the middle class lived "back in the day." Offers a package to go with Heritage Hall.

Both of these adjacent houses provide an interesting slice of Madison's history. Rogers House is the oldest remaining house in town and is still on the original lot. Rose Cottage is named after "Miss Rose", an African-American lady born into slavery who bought the lot,...More

We purchased a combo ticket with the Heritage Hall tour. It was interesting to see how the middle class lived. More surprising was the Rose Cottage. It was amazing that a woman of color was able to save enough money to build a home back...More

Loved seeing these 2 homes and hearing the history - especially of the Rose Cottage. The decor and furnishings of these "middle-class " homes are lovely. Our guide was very informative and answered our questions easily. Don't miss these homes when visiting Madison!

Yes I think the below is correct...about $15 for all three which is extremely reasonable! Think the hours of operations were about 10 - 5.
