Rock Ford Plantation is the erstwhile home of Edward Hand who served as Adjutant General to George Washington. The house is situated on a 33-acre property on the south-eastern edge of Lancaster town. The house was opened as a public museum in 1960. It has been decorated with artefacts from the 1800s. Guided tours elaborate on the country lifestyle when General Hand was living in this mansion. There is also a barn in the property that was constructed after the museum was opened to the public. It was on this location that General Hand has his own barn. Other buildings in the property include the tenant house, the spring house, an additional barn, and several outbuildings. Visitors often are taken back in time when visiting this house.

Rock Ford Plantation Reviews & Ratings
My wife and I recently had our wedding here, and it could not have gone more perfectly. I would recommend Rockford Plantation for any type of event. Meagan was amazing to work with. And the venue itself is a beautiful setting that provided us with the perfect spot for a perfect night!
This is a wonderful place! We had a great tour guide that really seemed to know her stuff and took the time with each person that a question. Loved it!
I can’t believe it took me 30 years to get here, but I am glad. This is an American treasure right in Lancaster’s backyard. The grounds are beautiful and the 90% authentic refurbishing of the mansion is impressive. The tour guide, Mike Henry, was excellent. He gave a great amount of detail and was very knowledgeable with all the questions with our small group. I hope more people will recognize the historic monument that is in our county and give it a visit. The kitchen was my favorite part. The cost is $8 and they accept credit cards. Make sure to arrive a few minutes before the hour you want to take the tour.
Very nicely restored home. The guide was full of information. I think the price for touring the house is a little more than the usual.
Rustic feel. Beautiful day beautiful wedding. Beautiful people
