Stable (left), constructed 1805. Stable (right) constructed 1857.
Hampton National Historic SiteSome of the finest Thoroughbred horses in the country lived in the stable to your left. Horses with names such as "Grey Medely," "Post Boy" and "Turkahoe" enhanced the reputation and purses of their owners. As founding members of the Baltimore Jockey Club and longstanding horse breeders, the Ridgelys and other prominent families helped establish the equestrian tradition that exists in Maryland today. Prized racehorses were treasured, and their impressive stable to your left was originally stuccoed to resemble the mansion, highlighting the affinity between the master and his horse.
