Gambrill house

We had some good weather last weekend and I decided to get out by myself and get some shots in. I started off in Frederick and quickly got bored, so I decided to hit the Monocacy  battlefield and mill around for a few hours. After walking around one of the several farms that comprises the battlefield, I happened upon a couple of nice nice guys who were out enjoying the day as well.  As our conversation wore on, one of them asked me if I had seen the Gambrill house. “No”, I replied as I had always thought that it was a private residence. Then the gentlemen informed me that even though the Gambrill property is part of the national park, that the house was as well and people are allowed to at least walk around the grounds of the house. As soon as our conversation was over, I drove right to the house to get a closer look. It is big and quite stunning as far as architecture goes. This house was built in 1868 by James Gambrill after the civil war and is now used by the park service as a historic preservation center.

  1. I want to live in that house. Of course I would have to glam it up a bit.. but I want to live there. I wish you could go inside. Great photo 🙂

    • I am certain that this house would be for you Kay. I am going to the house this week to see if they will let me inside.

    • Thank you Brandon. I got to arrive here in the late afternoon which is my favorite time of day, which is my favorite time to shoot.
