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.learn more
