Hampton Mansion, Maryland

public

There seems to be some confusion regarding "Hampton Mansion, Maryland." My search revealed two possibilities:

1. Hampton National Historic Site, Towson, Maryland

This is a 63-acre estate featuring a mansion and surrounding gardens. While not technically called "Hampton Mansion," it's commonly referred to as such.

Here's what I found about the Hampton National Historic Site:

  • History: Built in the 1790s by Charles Ridgely, a prominent Marylander, the mansion served as his home and the center of his agricultural operations. It's considered one of the finest examples of Federal architecture in the United States.
  • Architecture: The mansion boasts a two-story brick structure with a central block flanked by two-story wings. Its interior features elegant rooms with intricate plasterwork and decorative elements.
  • Gardens: The surrounding gardens are equally impressive, showcasing a variety of plants and flowers, including a formal parterre, a kitchen garden, and a greenhouse.
  • Significance: Hampton National Historic Site is a National Historic Landmark, recognized for its architectural and historical significance. It offers visitors a glimpse into the life and times of a wealthy Maryland planter during the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

2. Hampton Mansion, Baltimore County, Maryland

This appears to be a private residence located in Baltimore County, Maryland. Information about this property is limited, and it's unclear if it's open to the public.

Here's what I could find about the Hampton Mansion in Baltimore County:

  • Location: The mansion is situated on a 10-acre property in a rural area of Baltimore County.
  • Architecture: Based on available images, the mansion appears to be a large, two-story brick structure with a traditional design.
  • Availability: It's unclear if the mansion is open to the public for tours or events.

Overall, while there's information available about the Hampton National Historic Site, details about the Hampton Mansion in Baltimore County are limited.
