The house is incredible. It is furnished with the originals that were there. It is amazingly beautiful. The tour leader was extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions--and he was a volunteer! After the very detailed tour, we explored the grounds. Although just a quarter mile north of the Baltimore Beltway (695), Hampton is a world unto itself. The grounds were very attractive, even in January, and the old, twisted trees a photographer's dream. The original owners had created an arboretum. There is an extremely old and contorted Lebanon cedar there that is quite interesting.
Such a great experience. Truly a hidden treasure that needs to be discovered.
