This is a national historic site in Towson and one of the great original homes from the colonial ear. The home was built by the Ridgely family and my father used to play with one of the Ridgely kids. IT is on about 60 acres and the home is magnificent

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.

We happened to spot a sign on our way home from Baltimore and decided to go there. Nice grounds with a house to tour. Across the road is also a farm site to tour to many buildings to go in. This was really a pleasant surprise.

The Hampton Mansion sits majestically on the hill overlooking the Hampton neighborhood. This lovely home is cared for by the National Park Service. The mansion is opened on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM. It is closed on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. It is free to visit. Every month they offer many events to the public - check the website. What will you see when you visit the mansion – beautifully decorated rooms – paintings – original furnishings belonging to the Ridgely family (seven generations to be exact). They built the mansion between 1783 and 1790 as a summer home. It was the largest private residence when it was completed. It is like taking a step back in time. If you ever get the chance, try to go when they open the cupola to the public, the views are incredible.
