Step inside the Jacobean country seat of the man who founded Maryland with a visit to Kiplin Hall. Kiplin Hall is a striking, red brick country house that looks every inch the imposing family seat and remains one of the most visited attractions in Richmond.
With looming pillars and iron gates, the house looks much as it did in its heyday and 17 of its rooms are open to visitors. From the collection of items once owned by the people who have called this house their home to the ornamental gardens, there’s a personal side to Kiplin Hall that makes a visit all the more fascinating.
If you make your way around the gardens make sure you nip behind the greenhouses where you’ll find the small Garden Museum, which tells the tale of the gardens and they blooms each owner of the house has planted. Entry to this museum is included within the fee to enter the house and gardens.
The house is currently decorated in the style of the Victorian era although it dates right back to the 1620s and retains its original features throughout. Dogs are welcome throughout the gardens and the grounds of the house although owners are asked to keep them on their leads.
