Rock Ford Plantation

Rock Ford Plantation is the circa 1794 Georgian-style home of Edward Hand who served as Adjutant General to George Washington.  Though remembered for his role in the fight for American independence, Hand was also a noted politician and doctor in Lancaster.  Today, Rock Ford is furnished with antiques to convey the lifestyle of the Hand family from 1794-1802. It stands as an authentic example of refined country living as it existed during the early days of the Republic and is the most intact building predating 1800 in Lancaster County.
