Hampton Historical Si
If history fascinates you, be sure to stop at the Hampton National Historical Site. Part of the 18th century estate that was owned by the Ridgely family, it includes the Georgian manor house, vast gardens, and the slave quarters. As the largest private home in the area during that period, it reflects the architecture of that time. Along with the buildings, the furnishings inside have been also preserved. With 200-year-old trees, formal gardens, and deep historical roots, this site will allow you to travel back in time and catch a glimpse of life in the 18th and 19th centuries.
