Researchers at the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina conducted a study on the Page family and their eighteenth-century mansion in Gloucester County, Virginia known as Rosewell. The house construction and architecture proclaimed its occupants to be powerful, educated and wealthy, but in less than three generations, the Page family suffered drastic economic decline.
Rosewell was the eighteenth century mansion of the Page family in Virginia, but only its ruins remain today. Continuing studies provide insight into the ceremonial and ritualistic workings of Rosewell. Although specific knowledge about Rosewell’s interior is scant, conclusions can be made about the family and their perceptions of themselves through the house’s overall design and furnishings.
