Please join us in the Great Hall for this entertaining Mother’s Day performance! Washington Post described the music of Magical Strings as “sonically gorgeous.” It will carry you to sublime realms with ancient airs and have you dancing to lively jigs and reels, as we explore history through music.

All American House/2016TM: Sunday, June 19 at 2pm in the Orangery. Please join Curator Gregory Weidman as she relates the fascinating story of how the great Georgian mansion was saved and became a unit of the National Park Service in 1948. As the only National Historic Site established for its “outstanding merit as an architectural monument” rather than association with a famous person or event, Hampton became an important symbol for the historic preservation movement nationwide. In addition to being an architectural gem, the mansion is filled with wonderful antique furnishings that once belonged to the seven generations of the original residents, the Ridgely family. Among these are highly important examples of the best Baltimore design made by the city’s most renowned cabinetmakers and silversmiths from the late 18th-19th centuries. After her lecture, Ms. Weidman will lead a special tour in the mansion focusing on these great examples of Baltimore craftsmanship in the period rooms. Visitors will also view “Hampton Becomes a National Treasure,” a temporary exhibit highlighting the story of the park's founding and preservation. The exhibit was planned to coincide with the 100thanniversary celebration of the National Park Service and the Find Your Park initiative.
