Was a nice clean park. The path was nice for walking the tour was a little long for young children and those having trouble walking. But was enjoyable and educational.

My ladies group recently toured Hampton National Historic Site. What a hidden treasure! We had a great tour guide, Elizabeth W., who told us many interesting things about the family and the mansion. There were many original furnishings, with different rooms showing the many generations of style changes. The family owned the property for over 150 yrs. The grounds include... More

A farm, a manor house and decay. With downtown Baltimore, Philadelphia and Washington DC so close, don't waste your time on what is basically a run down farm. As a local, I wanted to check this out. First, the parking lot is a good 10 minute walk from the actual manor house. This is important because the doors of the... More

Hampton is truly a hidden gem. The grounds are beautiful and the house is well maintained and restored. The architecture of the home and the interior furnishing are worth the visit alone. The interior is filled with pieces once owned by the family, and cover seven generations. The tour guide was knowledgeable and we gained insight on what it was... More

If you're a Baltimorean, Hampton Mansion is one of those places that you've always known about but never visited. I changed that over the Memorial Day weekend. Spend some time wandering the gardens and the out buildings and cemetery then take a guided tour of the house. Return to the wrought iron bench overlooking the parterres and imagine what it... More

I have learned so much about everything that happen in the past, our guide was very educated, she was recounting the story like she was there at the time. I would really recommend that place

We were passing through when we saw this site and thought we would check it out. What a great place! I would love to return sometime in the spring, summer or early fall when flowers are in bloom and leaves are on the trees and all the outer buildings are open. The estate is well maintained and preserved and gives... More

Maybe the sight itself doesn't have something new every day, but it'll almost certainly have something you didn't know about American history. The site has an impressive number of antiques spanning centuries, and the tour guides are knowledgeable. Ours claimed to be an actual historian - not a tour guide - and it reflected well during the mansion tour.

If you like history, or maybe you're just not sure, then I suggest a visit to the Hampton National Historic Site in Towson. For years I drove by it and wondered what it was. Yes it was a beautiful old mansion, but what was inside. Finally I thought it might be a good idea to investigate, aren't I smart! Hard... More
