This gem is off the more touristy path in Waupoos which houses wineries and many activities. Drive a bit further and discover some Prince Edward County heritage at the Rose House Museum. The Rose House has survived since the early 1800’s with few alterations, inhabited by several generations of the Rose Family.
Peter Rose arrived in Prince Edward County among first Marysburg settlers, made up largely of United Loyalists and Hessian (German) soldiers who had fought for the British American Revolution. According to tradition, Rose House is constructed from salvaged Timber from the community’s original Lutheram Church. Peter and his wife, Christina Bongard, raised a large family in the modest farmhouse.
