Swan Harbor Farm is a charming, 460 acre historic homesite with rolling lands bordering the Chesapeake Bay.  Maintained as a gentleman's farm, it is surrounded by verdant fields and majestic trees.

From the initial approach through the woods and continuing along a tree-lined lane, visitors will know they are headed towards something special.

The grounds include a beautifully landscaped brick patio, walkways, formal gardens and rustic barns which can serve as a backdrop for a courtyard wedding or a marvelous entry for your gathering.

The mansion house and grounds are available for corporate functions, educational conferences, weddings, recreation activities, private parties and other affairs.   Experience old world charm and modern amenities in this woodland setting overlooking the Chesapeake Bay.


Website: http://www.liriodendron.com

Liriodendron, designed in 1897 by the Baltimore architect J.B. Noel Wyatt, was the summer residence of Dr. Howard A. Kelly, one of the "Big Four" physicians of Johns Hopkins Medical School.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Palladian mansion has been described as "belonging on the cliffs of Newport, rather than on the western edge of Bel Air in Harford County".

The buildings and 108 acres of woodlands are owned by Harford County as part of Heavenly Waters Park.  In 1980, with the encouragement of the county government, the Liriodendron Foundation, Inc., a non-profit Maryland corporation, was created to manage the property for public benefit and to raise funds for its support.
