The colors of the decor are surprisingly unusual. Hampton is an extraordinary house for its' period in time. Although some things were predictable for the period, the home seemed to have an exceptional flare and more depth to its' interiors. The grounds are beautiful.

Beautiful grounds, detailed escorted mansion tour, several outbuildings- including dairy and slave quarters, along with an underground ice mound. Many of the items in the home are original to the family, photography is allowed, plenty of free parking and no admission fee!

This home was built for the Ridgely Family, they owned most of Baltimore County. I great place to walk the grounds and tour the mansion. It is very easy to get to, right off the Baltimore Beltway.
