Beautiful house and property, but certain staff is extremely rude and unfriendly. The house tour itself is AMAZING! Rock Ford House is a beautifully restored 18th century house in a park. Theyve paid so much attention to detail, from furnishings to carpets to paint colors. Our tour guide, Sam Slaymaker, did an excellent job explaining the rooms and lives of the Hand family. He was very informative and answered every question we had. If you love old houses and history, you have got to see Rock Ford House! Ask for Sam as your tour guide! Now...on a side note: We arrived half an hour before the tour and were just walking around, enjoying the view. There was a large, unmarked barn near the house that we thought was a museum or something. As soon as we got inside the tour guide (who had just finished a session with a visiting school) asked us what we were doing and why we were in there. Apparently we werent supposed to be in there and should have known that, even though there were no signs saying "Private" or "Reserved". If the barn isnt open to visitors, then please explain that with a sign or something instead of "shooing" them out.
Beautiful house and property that has important ties to both local and national history. Offers regular tours and special historically themed events/reenactments throughout the year and is available to rent as a venue for weddings or other functions.

A beautiful homestead. The place has been left to look authentic. The special events such as their Christmas open house are exceptional, classy and very much enjoyable. A great experience.
I wish there was more to see but the tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable. We got to experience a little of the cooking in the kitchen which was really cool as well!
Awesome, well preserved property! Such a historical place! Amazing to see this home built in the 1790s. Glad that people saved this treasure!
My wife and I love early colonial homes. This one even has historical significance being the home Washingtons Adjunct during the revolution.
Good early mining/ colonial..but small
