Historic Rosedale, at 3427 N. Tryon Street, has been part of Charlotte’s history since 1815, when the house was completed by Archibald Frew, a tax collector and postmaster for the town of Charlotte.
The last people to live in the house were Mary Louise and Alice Davidson, sisters who sold the home and land to the Historic Preservation Foundation of North Carolina in 1985.
Historic Rosedale is offering several special events this fall. Please follow the links below to purchase your tickets, when required. Note: the Haunted History Tours always sell out.
Autumn Market Day at Historic Rosedale
Historic Rosedale is hosting an Autumn Market Day on Saturday, November 14th, 2020, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This is an old-fashioned community yard sale and vendor market.
This is your chance to shop for unique gifts before the hustle and bustle of the holidays. You’ll also have a chance to shop for treasures from Rosedale, such as wooden bowls that craftsmen made from fallen trees on the property, and items made in the blacksmith shop.
While you’re shopping, you can stroll the gardens and grounds and listen to presentations on our historic 1815 home, the oldest wood frame house in Charlotte.
Visit the Blacksmith shop, which will be operating with demonstrations throughout the day.
Explore the local community – Historic Rosedale is just minutes from all the fun in Noda, right down the street from the Noda Brewing Company, and near to uptown and the university area. This event will be held rain or shine and face coverings are encouraged.
Admission is free.

These Our wildly popular Haunted History Tours are all the rage in the Queen City! Come spend your evening with the Charlotte Area Paranormal Society (CAPS) and Historic Rosedale staff to discover how many of our former residents have chosen to remain behind.
