About Rose Hill
Rose Hill is a beautifully restored Winter Colony in Aiken, South Carolina. This complex has a rich history of creating and nourishing the organizations that have left a rich legacy in the City of Aiken, such as, the Girl Scouts of America’s Aiken Chapter, the Garden Club of Aiken, Garden Club of South Carolina, and the Aiken Center for the Arts. Over a century of determination, passion for natural beauty, giving, and accomplishment woven with a sensibility of reserve and elegant understatement provide a glimpse of timeless beauty and wondrous charm that is Rose Hill Estate.
The property on which Rose Hill now stands was originally owned by Confederate soldier Alfred Holmes and the original Antebellum home is believed to have been destroyed during the Battle of Aiken. Nearly thirty years after the end of the Civil War, the property and temperate climate caught the attention of a family from the Northeast as the site for their winter home.
