Historic Rock Ford exists to promote knowledge of the life and times of Revolutionary War General Edward Hand for the cultural and educational benefit of the public. Edward Hand, his mansion house, its collections and its grounds provide a multitude of subjects related to life in Early America to explore.

The mansion is on the National Register of Historic Places and is recorded in the Historic American Building Survey. Rock Ford is widely considered to be one of the most important examples of Georgian domestic architecture surviving in Pennsylvania and the most intact building predating 1800 in Lancaster County. The mansion’s elegant rooms are furnished with an outstanding collection of period furnishings and decorative arts.
