Built around 1854 along the stagecoach route by Thomas Rowan, the home became a showplace and setting for social occasions. When built, it was the only home in the area with an indoor kitchen sink with hand pump. It can still be rented for special events. The carriage house at Rowan Oaks Historic Home holds the Leeds Historical Society’s replica of a stagecoach that delivered mail along the Cahaba Trail through Leeds.
Opened by appointment, the house and grounds can be viewed and used as a meeting place where lunch can be served or reunions and other events can be accommodated. To schedule an event at the Rowan house, visitors can contact Loretta Veasey at 205-699-8253 to inquire about rentals. The home and grounds are located along an eight-mile stretch of Alabama scenic byway in Leeds.
Open by appointment only.
