Rose Hill Mansion, in Fayette, New York, also known as Rose Hill, is a "monumental-scale" mansion, built in the form of a 2-story Greek temple with six Ionic columns, that was built in 1837. It has been attributed to architects Minard Lafever and Andrew Jackson Downing, but is most likely to have been built by skilled local craftsmen without either of those architect's involvement. It is built in the style of architect Minard Lafever, and in particular may have drawn on his pattern book The Beauties of Modern Architecture.
Beautiful place to take event pictures
A beautiful historic home and an interesting piece of Finger Lakes history. They have a fantastic gift shop too!
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Rose Hill Mansion. I recommend it if you are in the Geneva area.
Its been a while but some of our family furniture and oils are in Rose Hill. Martin Smith owned Rose Hill in the early 1900's. He was my Grandma Cook's father. There is much to make me nostalgic ... I grew up in Geneva, in a home that is now Hobart and William Smith's Admission Offices, I believe, 616 South Main Street. When May Martin Cook (who grew up at Rose Hill) married Edward John Cook...this was their family home. The tour through Rose Hill has always been wonderful. Makes us all go back to years before we were born. To a day of sea captains and gentlemen farmers. Carol Marvin Shelly
Great period museum, with much to see and learn about local history. Unique and beautiful mansion overlooking Seneca Lake. Tours available. Highly recommended. Note - Might not be interesting for the younger ones.
Nice, historic home, excellent guide, worth a visit for those interested in period homes
