Info

This Woodstock attraction features the summer house that was host to presidents Grant, Hayes, Harrison and McKinley. Roseland Cottage depicts the summer life of a prosperous family in mid 19th-century America. Built in 1846 in the newly fashionable Gothic Revival style, the house provided a seasonal escape from a more formal city existence for Henry Chandler Bowen and his family. The barn contains what may be the oldest surviving bowling alley in the country. The grounds feature an 1850 boxwood parterre garden. The barn and grounds are also available for function rentals.
