Rare CW Image of the Hampton House Md.- Hampton House preserves a vast estate from the 1700s. Its centerpiece is an elegantly furnished Georgian mansion set amid formal gardens and shade trees. When it was finished in 1790, Hampton was the largest house in the United States. This famous house is the story of a seven generation family business, early American industry and commerce, and changing cultural tastes. Hampton is also the story of the economic and moral changes that made this kind of estate life obsolete. Most of all, Hampton is the story of people -- enslaved African Americans, indentured servants, hired industrial and agricultural workers, and the estate owners - who made this lifestyle possible. The Ridley family of Maryland owned the property and at one time was one of the most northern estates that had and dealt in the business of slavery. The house is a national historic site managed by the National Park service. This is an ORIGINAL photograph from the 1860's measuring approximately 5x7 picturing the magnificent house and a woman standing in front who appears to be black.
