North entrance to the Hampton Mansion

Picture 5 of 63

North entrance to the Hampton Mansion. The north and south entrances, which directly oppose each other across the center of the house, are known as "axial" entrances because they intersect the primary axis of the house. There is no front or back door as we term them today. To the north, the carriage entrance opens to the heart shaped carriage drive, and to the south the garden entrance gives access to the formal gardens.
