Inscription.  Hampton National Historic Site preserves the core of a large estate owned by the Ridgely family from the Colonial era until 1948. During the early 1800s, it formed the hub of a vast agricultural and industrial enterprise numbering over 25,000 acres.

The remaining 63 acres preserved by the National Park Service including the historic mansion, formal gardens, Overseer's House, Slave Quarters, Dairy and numerous other outbuildings. We invite you to stroll the estate. Interpretive markers on the grounds will help tell the history of Hampton and its people.
