Fodor's Expert Review La Grange Plantation

Cambridge House/Mansion/Villa

Headquarters to the Dorchester County Historical Society, this property houses two historic homes. The three-story, 18th-century Georgian Meredith House is rich with Chippendale, Hepplewhite, and Sheraton period antiques, and the Children's Room holds an impressive doll collection, cradles, miniature china, and baby carriages. Portraits and effects of seven former Maryland governors from Dorchester County adorn the Governor's Room. In the Neild Museum are agricultural, maritime, and Native American artifacts. There's also a restored smokehouse, blacksmith's shop, and medicinal herb garden on the grounds. Fall is ablaze with vibrant leaves and many family activities.
