Explore the landscape at Hampton National Historic Site in Towson, MD. On this guided walking tour with National Park Service staff, learn how architecture influenced both the mansion and the gardens. For much of Hampton’s history, scenic gardening reflected the interests, social statuses, wealth, and creativity of the Ridgely family. From the 1790s to modern day, the cultural landscape of Hampton has changed to suit the wants and needs of those who occupy the property. Hampton’s landscape tells the story of the many functions of landscaping, labors, and people used to create scenic grounds. MCHC members will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear about the recent research beyond the Tracing Lives of the Enslaved ethnographic study with Curator, Hampton National Historic Site at NPS, Gregory Weidman.
