Be sure to check the list of many events and programs going on around the County during the month of December. From train gardens to tree lightings–—it’s the most wonderful time of the year in Baltimore County!

Holidays at Hampton National Historic Site

The Hampton National Historic Site.

Over the weekend of December 10 and 11, experience the Christmas traditions of the people who lived on the Hampton plantation from 1790 to the modern era. Special evening tours, period crafts, live music and songs of the season, African American storytelling, and holiday shopping in the gift shop are just some of the activities taking place.

In the mansion, step into a Regency era-styled holiday gala that includes harp performances. On the farm, see how holiday celebrations differed greatly by culture and class. In the orangery, watch media presentations to learn the role of the National Park Service in preserving Hampton’s structures, landscapes and collections.

All festivities are free and open to the public. Free parking and continuous shuttle bus services will be available from the Towson United Methodist Church at 501 Hampton Lane.
