This was an amazing find. Huge, free and filled with history. It is a massive house. The staff is amazing and the history is phenomenal. A lot of original pieces dating back to the late 1700's.

Very rare historical site around the Baltimore area. If you love local history, you will see one of the finest homes in the area. Very easy to find… Right next to the Baltimore Beltway.
