Roseland Cottage, a National Historic Landmark, depicts the summer life of a prosperous family in 19th century America. Built in 1846 in the newly fashionable Gothic Revival style, the Cottage provided a seasonal escape for Henry C. Bowen and his family.
Beautifully situated across from the town common, Roseland Cottage has survived virtually unchanged, with its original Gothic furniture, embossed Lincrusta-Walton wall covering, and coral-pink exterior. The museum complex includes a formal parterre garden, an icehouse, garden house, carriage barn and the oldest surviving indoor bowling alley.
Visitors are encourage to bring a picnic, relax on the grounds, and enjoy the gardens just as the Bowen family and their guests did more than 150 years ago.
