  • Interesting history. Very friendly National Park Rangers. Beautiful grounds with several trails.
  • Very nice national historic site near DC. Really enjoyed my visit there. The park ranger was very helpful.
  • Very interesting history. Lots to look at. You can have a tour of the house. Rangers are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. There is a Junior Ranger badge program for Thomas Stone + many others. Lots of fun for all ages. Handicap accessible.
  • Rather small house. Plenty of room to walk around outside. The ranger is very friendly.
  • A hidden gem of the National Park Service in the Washington DC area. Grounds are well managed, beautiful and quite natural setting, and Ranger Lassman is truly dedicated to this location and is a wealth of knowledge. He not only brings the story of Thomas Stone to life, but the history of Maryland as well through the arc of the Stone family. Also has a really good Junior Ranger program here too - not too difficult or hard but informative and educational for all ages.
