This is the second time I have visited here, and I strongly recommend this Historic Site. First, there is no admission! Second, you will learn quite a bit of history. Third, even though it is a small site, it is a nice place to relax...More

The home and farm of a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The property was in the Stone family until it became a part of the NPS. The furnishings are authentic and as a result of some acquisitions by the Baltimore Art Museum and pictures...More

We stopped here and were surprised by how much we learned and enjoyed the visit. It was such a pleasant and surprisingly had lots of facts and history that I had never been introduced to before. Definitely recommend.

Park Ranger was very interesting and knowledgeable. Only the lower floo is open plus the side building, tobacco barn and a corn crib. One can also visit the buriel area of the family. It's free and worth the visit.

Toured Thomas Stone NHS; appreciated the NPS ranger tour. Overall pretty bland site. Thomas Stone also seemed to play almost no role in the Revolution...not sure why he has a NHS.
