Three miles west, on Carter's Creek, stand the ruins of Rosewell, a grand mansion with the finest brickwork in the English colonies. Begun in 1725 by Mann Page I, and home to the Page family for more than one hundred years, Rosewell stood three stories tall. It was crowned with a parapet and twin octagonal cupolas and had two flanking dependencies on the north front that formed a forecourt. Rosewell contained fine paneling and wood carving. In 1916, fire swept the mansion, leaving a magnificent shell that is a testament to 18th-century craftsmanship.
