Thomas Stone National Historic Site
Thomas Stone was just one member of a prominent Maryland family: his great-grandfather was given acreage in 1658 and began the family line, and his two brothers fought in the Revolutionary War. His home was in fact in the family until 1936. Today, the mansion still stands and has been restored after a 1977 fire, and visitors can also see exhibits at the Visitor Center, as well as Thomas Stone's grave site and many outbuildings. Overall there are 322 acres of trails for visitors to guide themselves on a tour of the grounds.
