Hampton is subdivision of Towson located just north of Baltimore City, Maryland. This community with 635 homes situated on lots up to several acres enjoys the serenity of a park like setting, with an abundance of wildlife and large mature trees. Yet this country neighborhood is less than five minutes from the center of Towson and 15-25 minutes from downtown Baltimore.
The community is anchored by its principle landmark, the Hampton Mansion and National Historic Site . Built in 1790 by Captain Charles Ridgely, the Hampton Mansion is a Georgian style home that was once a working plantation and industrial site. In 1929 the Hampton Development Company was formed and the land around the Hampton Mansion site was subdivided, creating the Hampton Community. The Hampton Mansion remained in the Ridgely family until it became a National Park in 1946.
