Historic Rosedale Plantation was built in 1815 by Archibald Frew, a local merchant and postmaster. The plantation originally took up 919 acres in what was then the village of Charlotte. Five generations of the family owned it until the Historic Rosedale Foundation, a group of investors interested in preserving Charlotte's past, purchased it in 1986. Restoration of the house began that same year and work on the gardens in the 1990s. Today the restored plantation occupies 8 and one-half acres in downtown Charlotte.
