Rosemont is Laurel's oldest home, dating to about 1769. Located at 121 Delaware Avenue, it overlooks Records' Pond and the town which grew up around it. The property was purchased by the Laurel Redevelopment Corporation in 2020 and is opened to the public by the Laurel Historical Society, which has staged rooms reflecting its various periods of ownership over the years. Restoration is in process.
Most notable among Rosemont's residents is Major Nathaniel Mitchell: officer in the Continental Army during the American Revolution, delegate to the Constitutional Convention at Philadelphia's Independence Hall, and Governor of Delaware ( 1805-1808 ).
Rosemont will be available for touring on the first Sundays of the month from 1pm - 4pm beginning in May.
Rosemont will host an open house on July 04 "Celebrating Nathaniel Mitchell" from 5pm - 7pm
