On April 24 during National Park Week, Hampton National Historic Site celebrated the grand opening of its new $2 million Visitor Contact Station with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The new 2,400-SF facility, which includes signage, maps, site history, a gift shop and restrooms, will provide orientation to visitors about the park and surrounding historic sites in Baltimore County. The ribbon-cutting ceremony also celebrated the completion and opening of a new 4,400-SF Collection Storage Building, entrance road, and parking lot. The ceremony was followed by an open house and tours of the new Collection Storage Building. The four projects totaled over $6.5 million in federal, state, local and non-profit funding.
