Rose Hill is in Fairfax County, Virginia, United States. Built in the mid-1950s, Rose Hill is the largest of the subdivisions, which is just southwest of Alexandria; others include Wilton Woods, Burgundy Village, and Winslow Heights. Street addresses are in Alexandria ZIP codes 22310, 22303 and 22315.
What is today the community of Rose Hill was established in 1954; that same year the body of Daniel French, Jr., which had been buried at the plantation at his death in 1771, was moved to Pohick Church. Within four years a Safeway had been constructed, as had two swimming pools serving residents. An elementary school was opened in 1957, a year after the foundation of the Rose Hill Civic Association. In 1970 the Fairfax County Park Authoritypurchased 148 acres in the area for construction of a golf course; the Greendale Golf Course was dedicated on August 19, 1976. Today it is one of eight courses managed by the Park Authority. Its property line marks the boundary of the community.
Today the history of Rose Hill is commemorated with a historic marker erected by the Fairfax County History Commission in 2000, located in front of the John Marshall Library. Another marker, erected as part of the Civil War Trails Program, tells the story of the 1863 raid. Also in the vicinity was the plantation Clermont, birthplace of Fitzhugh Lee. The site of the plantation is noted by a marker erected by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources in 2004; located in front of Mark Twain Middle School, it is south of the plantation's actual location. Landmarks in Rose Hill also included a pair of silos that were once part of a dairy farm in the vicinity, and which were later converted to serve as showers for the Rose Hill Swimming and Tennis Club. Attempts were made to list them on the Fairfax County Inventory of Historic Sites.
