Descendants of Detmar Sternberg acquired hundreds of acres on Patapsco and Back River Neck in the Colonial Era. One such estate was called Ballestone. Ballestone Manor is open to the public first two weekends of December. There are period decorations throughout the house and gift shop is open. Dec 1&8 5:00 to 8:00 PM and Dec 2&9 2:00 to 8:00 PM 2001 are the hours. Detmar's grandson Thomas Stansbury and wf Jane are burried in nearby cemetery.
If you've never been there, Ballestone is a step back in time. Located on the Back River, below Essex, Maryland call (410) 887-0217 for more info.
