Rose Hill in Front Royal

I went to Front Royal on Sunday to shop at Better Thymes Natural Foods and Martin's. I took my camera along with the idea of taking some photographs of historic sites since it was a sunny day.

This is Rose Hill, an estate that saw action during the Civil War. (Don't be confused - there are a lot of Rose Hills, including one at Kernstown which also saw action in Jackson's Valley Campaign.)

There's a Civil War Trails Marker nearby but it's pretty much out of sight of the house. I walked around the block and saw that the house has an almost identical facade on the other side (below).

The house is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is not open to the public.
