Acerca de Mim

Montpelier House Museum, a National Historic Landmark, is operated by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC) as a house museum.

Montpelier Mansion was built in the 1780s as a plantation for agriculture and iron production. Now a historic landmark, it preserves the histories of the free and enslaved residents who lived and worked there. The plantation house was home to four generations of Snowdens as well as enslaved individuals documented to have lived here. Individuals like Nance, Catte Creek, and Ben, a blacksmith.


Learn more about the site and the daily life of the residents as they are reflected through the architecture, archaeology, and stories of this national historic landmark.
