Trip Advisor Fun Trip to learn about the history of MD plantations
Jul 30, 2014 by: John P from Fairfax, Virginia
We enjoyed visiting one of the few remaining plantation homes in this part of Maryland. The docent guided tour was very god and quite informative.



Trip Advisor lots of free events

This mansion has art shows and lots of events for little or no cost. You can find prettier plantations but I don't know any one with more activities per year. If there is an admission fee it is never high.



Trip Advisor Interesting attraction - (cheap but) deceptive fees.
Jan 10, 2014 by: marcyNewYork from new york
The grounds were peaceful and well kept and it was interesting to see how people lived and entertained in bygone eras. While the mansion is listed as the attraction, you are not told that about 30% of the “attraction” is the (exquisite) needlework art on display. When you enter the mansion you are told of two separate prices: one to see the mansion and another to see the needlework however, at the end you are told that you cannot see the mansion without seeing the needlework, located in a few areas of the mansion. Why mention two prices when the needlework is a mandatory part of the tour, which doubles the price? The needlework art is beautiful however, it should be told up front that the needlework is a mandatory part of the attraction, which doubles the price of admission. The admission for both attractions is only $6 but I think employees should be honest because some people are on a strict budget and there may be several family/friends visiting together. With that said, I would definitely recommend this attraction – just be honest and people won’t mind paying.



Trip Advisor Great History

This is one of the great mansions of PG county. The Architecture and the grounds make you feel like you are back in colonial times. A hidden treasure in the congested Washington Baltimore area. Make sure you take a tour of all the out buildings.



Trip Advisor Great free concerts
Aug 04, 2013 by: Bruce L from Laurel, Maryland
In the summer the have great free concerts every other Friday evening. The have a semi trailer which unfolds into a full stage which is set up at the bottom of a natural slope of meadow. Bring your own chairs or blankets and coolers and set on the hill side for the concert. We recently attended a Tribute to Motown music. It was a two hour concert by a group from Washington. Very nice way to spend an evening with your family or your sweetie.
