Built as a private estate in the early 1900s, Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek is steeped in history. After a fire claimed the original residence in 1908, the original owners embarked on a tour of Europe with their architect, amassing an intriguing collection of antique pieces, authentic fixtures and luxurious materials for their new home along the way.
By 1925, the opulent Sheppard King manor was complete. Displaying architectural influences from 16th-century Renaissance Italy, the home featured a stunning cantilevered staircase and ornate interior décor typical of the grandest European estates. It also boasted the first private elevator in Dallas. Over the years, the palatial residence hosted countless society parties as the center of the Dallas social scene. Famous guests included President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Tennessee Williams. The manor changed hands a number of times, moving between wealthy families and prestigious corporations.
In 1979, the Rosewood Corporation purchased the property and transformed it into a world-class restaurant and hotel. The Mansion Restaurant opened to rave reviews and extraordinary national acclaim in 1980. In 1981, the luxury hotel was added to complement the original residential structure, offering 142 guest rooms and suites. The hotel debuted with a grand gala benefiting the local arts and education communities, an early indication of a strong commitment to philanthropic endeavors.
Across the decades, modern design elements have been introduced while preserving historic details. Meticulously restored interiors, hand-carved fireplaces, marble floors and stained-glass windows continue to reflect the estate's original magnificence.
