There’s a lot…
to be thankful for in Aiken these days. Individuals and companies are investing in Aiken on a large and small scale. There’s good energy, and a sense of enthusiasm and hope for the future. We’re excited about the direction Aiken is going, and want to share some good news… focus on what makes Aiken a special place to live. Here’s Aiken Living.
New Owners for Rose Hill Estate
Did you know that Elizabeth (Liz) Smith and her fiance, Andrew Hobbs have purchased the historic Rose Hill Estate in Downtown Aiken? Eight guest rooms in Rose Hill’s main house will be available for overnight accommodations, and public and private events also will be held at the estate. Two restaurants are (re)opening at Rose Hill. Located on the first floor of Rose Hill’s two-story, Dutch colonial shingle-style main house will be Sheffield’s, a fine dining tapas restaurant. The Stables will be an eatery featuring “a modern twist on Southern food, with a regional focus on ingredients and relationships with local farms.” The Stables will officially re-open today, September 4th.
We’re so excited that Rose Hill is making a comeback with Liz Smith. It’s a beautiful property that deserves to be treated like a gem, and we’re confident that Liz and Andrew have the experience to make it happen. Be sure to include Rose Hill in your plans for dinner, an upcoming event, or stay…this one is going to be a winner.
Congratulations to Liz and Andrew, and thank you for investing in Aiken!
