HARFORD COUNTY’S HISTORIC EVENTS VENUE AND CULTURAL CENTER
Welcome to the Liriodendron Mansion
The historic Liriodendron mansion, built in 1898, was the summer residence of Dr. Howard A. Kelly, one of the four founding physicians of Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Sold to Harford County in the late 1970s, the mansion now operates as a historic, cultural, educational, and recreational facility, managed by the nonprofit Liriodendron Foundation, Inc.
The mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic
The 2nd floor of the Palladian mansion houses a free Art Gallery, and the Ice House on the property is home to a Prehistoric Native American exhibit. The 108 acres of grounds, part of Heavenly Waters Park, are open for public use from sun-up to sundown.
