The Rosemary House opened its doors in 1968 with some sparse inventory, handmade crafts, and items from the garden all lovingly placed on metal shelving units ordered from the Sears and Roebuck Catalog and assembled by dear old dad.   As we celebrate out 50th year we would love for you to share your memories, both old and new, of visiting The Rosemary House.  You can read more about our journey in our Flashback Blog

I wondered if you were still open! I googled and there you were. The last time I visited you must be 30+ years ago. Of course I’ve seen you at fairs and festivals since then. I must visit soon.

Hello! I have been following along with your shop via social media from Florida. I had lived in Mechanicsburg about 10 years ago and I’m delighted to say I am coming back and one of the first places I will go is on a visit to your lovely shop! Just can’t wait! Cindy

I'll never forget taking my first soap making class in 2006 at The Rosemary House a friend suggested they were having and she knew how much I wanted to learn how. I've been making soap, body products and home aromas ever since. I may have to check out the year long herbal class.

Thanks so much for this fun memory! We’ve had so many classes over the years. The ten month herbal course is very comprehensive approach to herbal medicine and medicine making. We hope you do check it out! Herbally yours, Rosemary

My friend told me about Rosemary House. My husband and I recently moved to Mechanicsburg. I have always been interested and have used herbs and essential oils. I used to buy my herbs on the Powwow trail in the south, I’m part Mohawk. I’d love to renew my interest and knowledge of herbs. We went to the Tea festival this past weekend, and had a great time!!! I look forward to coming to some of your classes.

I recently moved on my own,minus grown kids. I have going through a lot of my stuff and found an article about your business that I had cut out of a magazine. I think it was an herb magazine. I always had intended to visit but life got ahead of me. Imagine my surprise to see you are still in business! You are definitely on my bucket list to visit!

Oh my your website is beautiful & makes my mouth water, everything looks & sounds delicious. I must let my daughter Kate know about you. Thanks so much for sharing & hope you can order from Canada. So wish your shop/classes, etc. were here in my hometown of Hamilton, Ontario. Thank-you
Just want to add that I have still some wonderful receipes on your little cartons with a little sheep on it! so cute and my grand daughters love them! for instance the meatloaf!
I came different time in the summer of 1971!!! I was a French student, guest of the Reppert family and I was so well received and hosted! We even join Carolyn and Phil in Miami with Marj and Nancy. Today in Egypt where I lived, my neighbor's son is telling me that he is living in Mechanicsburg!!! what a shock and suddenly all the good remembrances and souvenir of this lovely musical family!!! Marj and Nancy visited me some years later in France! Hope all the 4 girls are OK! wish you all the best! Nadine

Dear Nadine – How exciting to hear from you! It has been a long time since you visited us – almost 50 years! We enjoyed your visit so much…. it was way too hot in Florida… and I remember learning to flip crepes in your home in France! What a small world to learn that your Egyptian neighbor's son is living in Mechanicsburg! All four girls are doing well! Hugs, Nancy (

I remember coming here when I was little. My grandmother, Rosina Martz, informed me that it is still up and running! I was more than delighted to hear of this and must get into the shop soon!
Karen Sawyer
NEVER stop making your ROASTMARY! And, if you do, please share the recipe so it can be passed down through our generations! Thank you for a wonderful product!

I wish The Rosemary House was not so far away! I'd be there a lot if it were closer! I'd love to participate in more of the activities in the evenings and the afternoon teas. I make it a point to go on as many bus trips as possible. They never disappoint. It really is the most interesting shop in Mechanicsburg.

We have participated in many craft shows in our 31 years and the 2nd tea festival at Rosemary House was our first tea festival. Not only was it well created, but the gardens were beautiful, the lectures were well done and the tea was literally out of this world. I was glad we were able to make and sell teapot jewelry for their tea loving friends. I met Bertha Reppert many years ago and I am so happy her daughters have carried on the tradition. Best of luck to the Reppert family in their 50th anniversary. Bob & Judy Showers, Showers, Showers of Buttons, Carlisle, Pa.
All that time together with his loving wife and he never could identify poison ivy!

Loved your parents sense of humor. Our trips home from college with your father behind the wheel were always an adventure! It always made me laugh when he would roll down the window and sing as loud as he could. Happy Father's Day to the mayor!

Loved to see your dad with your mom on the Rosemary House bus trips. I lost my dad at age 7 and so I loved that Byron was in every aspect of your lives. I loved his silly jokes and that he loved Penn State. He was just a wonderful dad!
Loved seeing the busy front desk blog, over the years. Gotta capture a photo of 11 year old Arielle (Susanna's grand niece) who relishes the opportunity to greet customers and ring up sales.
I grew up in Mechanicsburg and have been going to the Rosemary House forever. My favorite memory is taking a wreath making class with a friend. The base of the wreath was made of Artemesia (silver king), which I now have growing in my yard. My dear friend passed away many years ago, but everytime I see that plant growing I think of her and our wonderful time together. The Rosemary House is a treasure.

I grew up in Camp Hill, this was one of my favorite places. Walking in and inhaling all the good smells brings back memories from 40+ years ago. I still have some patchouli oil from all those years ago! Congratulations on your 50 year anniversary and best wishes for many more.

Just attended a wonderful information session presented by Susanna at the Herb Festival at Triple Oaks in Southern New Jersey! Thank you so much for your presentation.
