Where We Tell the Stories behind the History


Rose Hill Mansion

Posted on May 23, 2014 at 5:29 PM

Just a little over a week ago, I was invited to attend a luncheon and tour of the historic antebellum mansion called Rose Hill, located just outside of Bluffton, South Carolina. I was there as the guest of the Palmetto Hall Women's Club of Hilton Head.  Many of these women also belong to a book club that read my biographical novel, The Road to Frogmore, last fall.  I was scheduled to be their guest at an Author Tea in November, but as some of you will remember, I ended up in the hospital with a broken pelvis and was unable to attend. This visit was something of a repayment of that cancelled event -- a chance for me to talk to many of the ladies, as well as introduce them to my newest book.

What a setting for a discussion of a historical novel! I've been trying ever since I got home to find a way to describe the house, but it's an overwhelming task.  I am in the middle of creating a Pinterest board that will feature some of the photos I took that day,  In the meantime, I have found an article that will give you a real feel for the house, its history, and its ties to the history of South Carolina. You can access the article here:
