They have a nice tour , go to the Ice House and Springhouse. Takes @ 1 .25 hrs to see everything.... It was free and really cool to see how the Ridgley's lived long ago...

I've lived in this area for over 30 years and I finally made it for their Christmas tour. If you like to experience the 1900's you need to see this place.
A Hidden Beauty

Mt. Vernon and Monticello could fit inside Maryland's Hampton Plantation. Once the home of the wealthy Ridgely family and 350 slaves, it is beautifully restored. Our tour guide was a retired school administrator volunteer who seemed to be a bottomless cup of knowledge. He knew so much and answered all questions readily. There were few people visiting so we had plenty of time to see the grounds and the gorgeous home. This free historic site should be a starred attraction for all Marylanders, school children, and folks visiting from outside the state because it's a gem.
Gem of a place

This "house" was beautiful. It must have been something to ride up to back in the 1800's as even today it is quite grand. The builder/owner was quite a collector of so many pieces of fine art. The family was obviously well connected. The gardens would have been lovely. It is to bad that the house couldn't be used for an American version of Downton Abbey. Our tour guide could have been a bit more knowledgable, but for the most part this is a place I am glad we visited. It's free too.
