A fine example of the Georgian architecture popular in Maryland in the late
1700s, Montpelier Historic Site sits on approximately 70 acres of beautiful
parkland. Architectural and building construction details, as well as
historical research, suggest that the house was constructed between 1781
and 1785. Major Thomas Snowden and his wife, Anne, original owners of
Montpelier Historic Site, welcomed many distinguished guests into their
home, including George Washington and Abigail Adams.
