My father grew up in a historic Howard County mansion originally built for one of the daughters that grew up in Montpelier.

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.

Its not a bad place to stroll and have a picnic. The gounds are maintained. You feel like you are back in time. You can smell the old bricks and actually unwind.

The drive out was very scenic and I did some vineyards tours the same day. Enjoy the beautiful Virginia countryside while en-route to Montpelier Mansion.

There is not much to see on the interior. The exterior of the house and the grounds are very attractive
