The Hampton Natl. Historic Site is the largest example of it's particular architectural style. Home of the Ridgeley's, each room is well maintained and furnished. There are also slave quarters and an overseer's home. We've taken family and out-of-town friends to see the plantation and all have enjoyed it. It's especially nice at Christmas, because the rooms are decorated and often there is s group playing period music.
GREAT PLACE TO GO!

Recently, I had the pleasure of going to this site. It was right in my backyard and I didn't even know it was there. The Mansion which was left by the previous owner was completely decorated and left in all it's glory ...complete with paintings...vintage furnishings...and china. It is a gem! Also, while there you will see the overseers home and the original slave quarters. Great for everyone but I would think school groups would get a lot from this wonderful venue!
Magnificent Historic Mansion

Not everyone is aware but when HAMPTON HOUSE was completed in 1790 it was the 'largest' private home in the United States !! Located on Hampton Lane right off of the Baltimore Beltway/695 at Dulaney Valley Rd.
House Reflects Fascinating Family History

This house and its furnishings and other contents help tell the long history of the Ridgely family. It's a saga from the Revolutionary period until well into the 1900s. The country setting is beautiful and the family graveyard, slave dwellings, and orangerie are very interesting. The guides are exceptionally well informed.
Excellent Views of Historical Baltimore
Feb 15, 2015 by: MDTravelerrrr from Baltimore, Maryland
I've had many opportunities to visit this beautiful historical mansion....The original owners occupied all of the land in the current Northern area of Baltimore County. From their high elevation they could see as far as the harbor, several miles away. The property has been beautifully restored and gives a true picture of the days of slavery. The tours here are excellent and appropriate for people of all ages.
