This place used to be great. I took my little brother here because he was learning about Maryland history in school. The employees did not make any effort to engage patrons. They no longer show the movie or give tours of the mansion. It was quite disappointing.
This is a neglected gem. Go to the visitor's center and watch a short film about Thomas Stone, a signer of the Declaration of Independence who is almost forgotten today. (He really seemed like a good man.) Then walk over to the house for a tour, stopping at the family graveyard along the way. After touring the lovely old home, go for a hike on of the hiking trails around there, and enjoy a picnic lunch. This is a great excursion; you learn a little history and enjoy the natural scenery in a quiet oasis not too far from DC. I went in the summer and want to see what it's like in the fall. Good to combine this with another of the area's many historic sites.
