Picture 1 of 63
I made a trip to the Hampton National Historic Site on June 1 and 8, 2002. I was pleasantly surprised to find such a nice historic site so close to where I live.
The National Park Service received Hampton Mansion and 43 adjoining acres in 1948 with additional lands and structures acquired in 1953 and 1980. Hampton's enduring significance is keyed to two features; its architecture; and its status as an early agricultural/industrial empire and an entailed American estate, whose economic and social history remained in the hands of one family for more than 200 years.
The first 44 pictures were taken during these trips in 2002.
