On my way home, I stopped at the Hampton Historic Site to learn a bit about the area, take a tour of the mansion, and learn a bit more about the prominent family who lived on the property. Thankfully it was empty on a cold winter's day as I had a whole tour to myself! The wonderful park service employee told me a lot more about the family, the slaves/indentured servants/paid workers who lived and served here throughout the years, as well as about the house itself. Most impressive was that 95% of the furnishings were actually owned by the family! Many historic homes have antiques that were of the time, but not actually owned by the individuals themselves. It's a really gorgeous home, and I definitely recommend everyone check it out!
