Mark your calendars for a significant event that combines history and community engagement. On Monday, November 6, 2023, at 11:00 am, join others for the Ribbon Cutting of the Rosemont Historic project, which includes a new walking trail and green space at 1875 Shrine Club Road, Waterloo. This endeavor is a collaboration between the Rosemont Preservation Society, the Laurens County Trails Association, and the Laurens County 250 Revolutionary War Committee.
The Laurens County Trails Association is thrilled to introduce a short but historically rich trail to an underserved area of the county. Rosemont Plantation, the backdrop for this project, was the former home of Ann Pamela Cunningham, a pivotal figure in preserving Mount Vernon, George Washington’s iconic residence. Cunningham’s legacy lives on through her creation of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, which saved and restored Mount Vernon when it faced financial peril.
“The Rosemont Historic project is a blend of history and community, offering a unique experience that connects us to our past,” says Bud Marchant, Executive Director of the Laurens County Trails Association.
The Rosemont Historic project, with its new walking trail and green space, not only pays tribute to Ann Pamela Cunningham’s enduring legacy but also offers a unique historical and educational experience.
