Built on Dharug land, Rouse Hill Estate was established in the 1810s, and held by the same family until 1993. Extensive gardens and agricultural buildings surround the house, which was added to over the years, though the original land was sold off. The house and gardens remain, now preserved by the Historic Houses Trust as a museum.
