Montpelier Laurel MD Stately Plantation Home

Montpelier is the best known home of the Snowden Family who were economic drivers of the Laurel Maryland economy for almost two centuries. The home has been a favorite destination for my friends and family for many years because it offers so much, from the perfectly proportioned Georgian style built in 1783, to ample grounds and a functioning arts center, located in a barn on the grounds that hosts local artists and their creations.

When I talk friends or colleagues from the Laurel area most have never heard of this many faceted attraction. The home is still filled with Snowden family treasures, hidden stairways, art and period furniture. The best approach to the site is via the Baltimore Washington Parkway.
