AAA Editor Notes
Rose Hall Great House is on Rte. A1 following signs. The original owner named the house after his wife, Rose, who survived him to remarry three times. Rose's fourth husband, John Palmer, completed the Georgian mansion in 1780. Fifty years later, a Palmer descendant married Annee Mae Patterson, the plantation's last mistress. Known as the “White Witch of Rose Hall,” she is rumored to have killed three husbands and countless lovers, many of them slaves. Legend says that Annee Palmer, murdered during the 1831 uprising, haunts the house.
