Visit the gracious 1794 Georgian style brick mansion of General Edward Hand, adjutant general to George Washington during the Revolutionary War. Rock Ford Plantation stands on the wooded banks of the Conestoga River one mile south of Lancaster. The Georgian style brick mansion remains remarkably preserved and essentially unchanged architecturally. Its spacious four floors conform to the same plan - a center hall and four corner rooms - typical of the period. Visitors walk the original 18th century floors and see original rails, shutters, doors, cupboards, paneling and window panes.

Special events are held throughout the year.
