The Homewood Museum Story
A tour of Homewood is a time-traveling experience, transporting you to the days when members of Maryland’s prominent Carroll family called this elegant Federal-period mansion home. As you move through the home’s spaces, you’ll see exquisitely decorated rooms, appointed in the most fashionable styles available to members of early America’s elite.
But underneath the sheen of privilege, all was not well. Hear about the personal struggles faced by the Carroll family, and meet the Ross and Conner families, who lived alongside, but were enslaved by, the Carroll family. How did these three families coexist in wildly unequal circumstances? What did they share? How were their fates linked? The answers are here. Come discover them for yourself.
