About the Hampton National Historic Site:
The Hampton National Historic Site tells the fascinating story of colonial fortune building, mined from local natural resources and the work of slaves and indentured servants; divided Civil War loyalties; and the decline of the powerful political Ridgley family.
The interior of the mansion is accessible only through guided tours that start every hour, beginning at 10:00am. Arrive at least 15-minutes early for a walk-in mansion tour, as space is limited. Individual reservations will not be taken. Tours run approximately 45-60 minutes.
Educators can arrange school tours and use the extensive pre-visit lesson plans for free.
Check out the site map and walk down the hill to tour the slave quarters that continue to tell the important story of the Ridgley family and Hampton Mansion.
