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

This was a great experience for my family. We learned so much about this historic site and had great tours of the different parts of the property. This added a great value to our history tour.

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
