Looking for something to do near, but not in, Annapolis, I did a quick Internet search. I found the Victorian Preservation Association, vpa.org, where a number of area historic homes were listed including Hampton. We decided to visit and are glad we did. It is a spectacular mansion, with amazing history, architecture and furnishings. Our Park Ranger gave a very good tour and was really familiar with the history of the family. The grounds are really interesting, with ancient trees dotting the landscape. We spent a couple of hours, but could have spent more. If visiting again, I would bring a picnic lunch.
The Hampton estate is also along the Horses and Hounds Scenic Byway (visitmaryland.org), which we are planning for a future outing.
