Montpelier Mansion

From www.pgparks.com:

A fine example of Georgian architecture, popular in Maryland in the late 1700's, Montpelier Mansion sits on approximately 70 acres of beautiful parkland. Architectural and building construction details, as well as historical research, suggest that the house was constructed between 1781 and 1785. Major Thomas Snowden and his wife Anne, original owners of Montpelier Mansion, welcomed many distinguished guests into their home including George Washington and Abigail Adams.

Montpelier Mansion, a National Historic Landmark, is operated as a house museum and rental facility. Select rooms have been researched and furnished as they would have appeared from the end of the 18th century until 1830. A boxwood-lined pathway runs through the garden to the original 18th century summer house.

The staff, in conjunction with the Friends of Montpelier volunteer organization, offers tours, concerts, festivals, re-enactments, exhibits, lectures, and seminars. In addition, teas are offered periodically. The Little Teapot Gift Shop at Montpelier is located on-site. Montpelier Mansion is available for weddings, receptions, luncheons, and meetings.
