Kiplin Hall

Kiplin Hall

Kiplin Hall was built in the early 1620s as a Hunting Lodge for George Calvert, Secretary of State to James I, later 1st Lord Baltimore and founder of Maryland, USA. Its design was unique in Jacobean architecture, with central domed towers on each side of a tall symmetrical pavilion in mellow red brick. Following a period of decline, the gardens and grounds are now undergoing major restoration, bringing new interpretations based on the framework of the designs of the last 400 years.
