Roseville Plantation contains an excellent and substantial post-bellum farmhouse constructed on the site of a late eighteenth century and early nineteenth century antebellum plantation. Built ca. 1885 on the foundations and with much of the heavy timber frame structure of the ca. 1835 plantation house, Roseville stands today as physical evidence of the revival and renewed prosperity of a southern family in the post Civil War period. The house underwent renovations with additions and minor changes about 1910. It evolved into an expansive farmhouse with an unusually broad wraparound veranda. The house at Roseville Plantation is at the end of a tree lined dirt driveway and set at the center of a broad sparsely landscaped lawn, resting upon a brick pier foundation which has recently been enclosed at its perimeter with stuccoed concrete block. The two-story, lateral gabled, weatherboard-clad residence consists partly of mortise and tenoned hand-hewn and peeled log construction. The house features a one-story hip roofed wraparound porch containing a V-crimp metal-clad roof and a four-foot overhang. While its primary significance is its architecture, it is locally important for its association with the Brockington, Bacot, and Clarke families. Listed in the National Register September 25, 1997.
