First off, you'll love the admission price...IT'S FREE! Take the whole family!

This is a beautiful home and site and the garden is beautiful as well. The many restored rooms are just gorgeous. The many bold colors they used back in the old days are amazing! Most of the outbuildings can be visited now also, but you'd best check first to make sure of that before you visit. I just can't remember how that works now, if it's just certain days of the week or a certain time of the year. Also, if you need handicapped accessibility you'd better call about that before you visit because the wheelchair lift was broken both of my last two most recent visits. If you enjoy history and older glorious homes this is a visit to definitely put on your list. I usually go twice a year and the spring is especially nice when the flowers are in bloom. I think you'll enjoy this place. They also do an annual festival there that's lots of fun as well.

This is a hidden gem.you access the park through a suburban development.It is almost a shock to come out of the development into this vista of history.This park traces the history of basically one family.The original house the family started with is there.Eventually they were wealthy enough to build the incredible mansion.There are a number of out buildings including a buttery(yeh a buttery)and a very deep ice house.I really enjoy the back of the mansion with the ancient trees and the gardens.This is a great local trip and a wonderful side trip if you are in the area on vacation.

My friends and I used to go their often. When they closed the small lunch room, it just lost something. We would go for lunch, shop at the giftshop and take the tour. They needed to listen to the women who were regulars.

This is a wonderful historic site in my backyard and is so underutilized by the citixens of Baltimore County. The visit is wonderful and the house and grounds are fabulous. Where can you see an integral portion of 18th century life in America without having to pay the Williamsburg prices?
