I loved to visit this famous historic mansion in Riverdale, long before the town was renamed Riverdale Park. Apparently the house and plantation surrounding it were and still are called Riversdale and there were over 2,000 acres of land. I am pleased to know that this important suburban Maryland historic house has been renovated and kept up as a museum. I remember fantasizing about living there. I used to walk almost every weekday to elementary school passing in front of Riverdale Mansion.
I visited the Mansion with my mother, 6 year old son (and my 2-year old twins). This was years ago, but I still recall the wonderful time we had! Our tour guide was knowledgable and patient (my son had a few questions for her!). It is rather small, but very nicely arranged and the grounds were lovely, too. Were planning to return next week to see how things have changed.
The house (even just the exterior, if you miss the tours), grounds, and garden are great to wander around. Theres a visitor center also with great historic information about the place and programmatic calendars. The staff are also lovely and helpful. A great M-NCPPC park / historic site in Prince Georges County.
If only the walls could speak. The history is fascinating. Every year when I visit Maryland I always visit this home. Its been fascinating to watch the evolution of the renovations and learn of a new finding. The staff is so knowledgeable and connected to this home and its history.
Beautiful old home. I go here for the 12th Night Ball every year, and other events as they occur. Highly recommend visiting the museum and taking the tour.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We were delighted with our tour and learning experience..... and Rosalie rocks!!!!
A very special place to visit when discovering Marylands and Prince Georges Countys history.
Just an old school, I use to go there for school events when I was a little kid.
Has a great garden full of things you never see. Cotton plants!
