We were told the next tour was at noon and then the guide told us that the noon tour was shorter than the others so he could take lunch. The tour guide told us about the history of the house...

We arrived shortly after the last tour ended, which we knew this coming in. We went to the visitor center to get our passport books stamped and get information. We entered the building and Ranger Mitchell was sitting at the desk with ear buds in his ears and playing a game on his phone. He never once looked up or... More

Lovely site located just outside the Baltimore Beltway. The house is beautiful and the tour is nicely done. The interior is decorated in period furniture and colors and you can tour the first two floors with a group. We loved all the portraits! The gardens are lovely and the kids enjoyed going underground into the ice house. Across the street... More

This place gets very little publicity- even locals don't know much about it, but it's absolutely worth a visit. Free and easy to get to. Beautiful grounds and an interesting tour of an old, fully furnished plantation house (about one hour). Hampton was home to a very prominent family and hundreds of slaves. Tour touches on the lives of all... More

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
