When built, Rosewell was the largest mansion in Virginia and remained such for many years. In the colonies, it was known as the most magnificent house and America's grandest home. As outstanding manor of its day it was regarded as one of the continent's greatest architectural treasures. It was an epicenter of events closely related to three epochs of our history: the initial contacts by the first English settlers with the Native Americans, the American Revolution, and the War Between the States.
