The popular, two-week program series, History Mythbusters, returns to Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site on Monday, July 10, and continues through Sunday, July 23.  Daily, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., site staff will explore commonly-believed myths by relating how and why they were created, and presenting the factual information behind each myth.


Throughout history, many misunderstood things about the past have had stories created to explain their purpose. With research, many of these stories have been found to be myths, yet are still related today at historic sites throughout the country. Visitors to Rosedown Plantation State Historic Site are invited to explore antebellum history and some of the myths that have come down through the past and continue today.
