About Tusculum Farm

https://www.tusculumfarm.com/about/our-story/

Tusculum Farm (the Farm) is included in the Maryland Inventory of Historic Properties and has a rich American history. The property was owned in the mid-18th century by Henry Griffith, a prominent Marylander who in addition to being a member of the Annapolis Convention that formed the Association of Freeman of Maryland, also witnessed the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Carl and Virginia Freeman became the owners of Tusculum Farm in May of 1964, making them the 16th in the chain of titles of the 500+ acre property dating back to 1747. The Freeman family lived on the farm up until 2015, when it was decided that Tusculum Farm would be opened up to all to create their own memories there. The Farm will always be a family farm, and everyone who visits is family.

Now, Tusculum Farm is the premiere B&B and events venue (the Inn officially opening in Spring 2019!), perfectly located between Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. The Farm is the ideal setting for gatherings of all sizes. From weddings, to showers, mini conferences to company meetings, family reunions, anniversaries, dinner parties, romantic getaways, friend weekends, memorials, screenings, holidays, a breather from the city, or anything in between—Tusculum Farm is a place where we help you celebrate life, and all the moments that come with it. No two celebrations are the same at the farm, and we love working with people to make their dreams a reality.
