A farm, a manor house and decay. With downtown Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington DC so close, don't waste your time on what is basically a run down farm. As a local, I wanted to check this out. First, the parking lot is a good 10...More

Hampton is truly a hidden gem. The grounds are beautiful and the house is well maintained and restored. The architecture of the home and the interior furnishing are worth the visit alone. The interior is filled with pieces once owned by the family, and cover...More

If you're a Baltimorean, Hampton Mansion is one of those places that you've always known about but never visited. I changed that over the Memorial Day weekend. Spend some time wandering the gardens and the out buildings and cemetery then take a guided tour of...More

I have learned so much about everything that happen in the past, our guide was very educated, she was recounting the story like she was there at the time. I would really recommend that place

We toured in rather inclement weather but there was plenty to see and the tour was very informative. Plan to go back when we can walk more of the grounds. How wonderful that it was saved from becoming yet another housing development!
