We missed the tour and they are not frequent. We walked the grounds and enjoyed the gardens. The rain put a damper on this visit since we could not go inside.

We came as it was a National Historic Site, without knowing much about the place, but was very impressed with the rich history of a historic mansion that had been in the same family for centuries. Although Covid currently prevents tours of the home, the ranger gave a great overview and there is a nice virtual tour in Visitor's Center. However, the grounds are open and we were very fortunate to have beautiful weather to explore. For me, the high point was the beautiful 300 year old Lebanon Cedar Tree that is off the Great Terrace.

Seeing the mansion is possible only through tours, "and that was even before COVID," a Ranger said to us. As of our visit, the only tours are at 10.00 and 13.00. There are grounds tours, also at certain times. (If you have Facebook, their site is a good place for updates.)

The park store is not open. They had hoped to open this week, if I heard right, but they do not have a definite date. Some of the merchandise is visible under cloth in the contact station. So no magnet, no sticker for us, but we hope to go back there anyway. We did get the passport stamps.

Regardless of our not being able to get inside the mansion, we still had a great time. My kid and I wandered the grounds, found some small greenish balls from a tree by the parquets, as well as an odd pinecone-looking thing which we took with us. We asked the Ranger what they were. The former were black walnuts, the latter which my kid thought was an acorn was the fruit of the magnolia tree.

We also didn't stop, but drove onto the farm portion, where there's picnic tables to have a lunch. We'll be back during warmer weather, and at a time when we can see the mansion!

I went to Towson University for three years and had no idea this was here.

Since both of the big houses were closed for covid, while I felt like a missed a lot, I still got a lot out of the other buildings, the cemetery and the gardens.

I parked by the visitor center (also closed) and spent about an hour and a half walking around the grounds. The volunteers were very eager to answer questions and provide directions. I listened to the audio tour from the NPS app for each of the little buildings and found the dairy particularly interesting!

It's hard to believe there is a place like this. Built around 1790 and containing about 95% original pieces, this gem tells a history of a family, right down to when the Park Service took it over nearly 200 years later. We went to the visitors center first. Here you schedule your tour and see some exhibits that give you a brief history of the estate and area. The park rangers are very friendly and helpful. Normally, docents give the free house tour, the day we were there they were all unavailable so we had a ranger and he did a great job. The house is beautiful inside, so full of treasures from the Ridgely family, arranged to show the many different eras that the family owned it. It's so hard to believe all of this could be so well preserved, but thanks to family itself for seeing that we have this mansion and surrounding grounds, right off of the Baltimore Beltway. Allow time to see it all.

A beautiful gem in Maryland. See what life was like at the Hampton Estate in the 1800's. Tour the grounds. A great day out!

Hats off to the terrific National Park Service tour. You've seen one old house you've seen them all, right? Not when the tour is being given by the professional and engaging docents of the NPS!

Because of the tour, I really came to appreciate the uniqueness of Hampton within the park system and how fortunate it is that the property and buildings have been restored and maintained. With each room decorated in the period of a different member of the family, you get a good idea of the changing styles and fortunes of the family. We visited during the Christmas season, so the house was festively decorated. Tip: Check the website for tour times. If you go during the last tour of the day at 3 PM, you may get an extended length tour if everyone in the group is willing to linger.

The visitor center is at the bottom of the hill, but you can drive up to the house.

This home is a accurate art and furniture from the original family. Ranger Angle was awesome to create the period of how slaves were gifted, l learned so much from his storytelling. Walking the ground around the tight slave housing was very interesting to experience.

I've tour the both the big house on this historical land and they have kept up up so well and in it original state. I grounds here are so peaceful and I walk it regularly with my dog. It's never too crowded but I like to see people on the property for that tells me I'm not the only one that likes it here. I've been at least 50 times and will continue to go back. It is by far the best place to take pictures.

I took a tour of the mansion and walked around the grounds. The same family live here for over 160 years. They made their money in selling iron. Its amazing how much money they made. All the boys in the family were either named John or Charles. It’s a nice place to visit.
