Located on the West River and Browns Creek near Annapolis, Tulip Hill was the plantation estate of Quaker merchant-planter Samuel Galloway. Named for its grove of tulip poplar trees, Tulip Hill saw construction of its Georgia-style mansion in 1755-62, with significant additions by Galloway's son, John, in 1787-90. The property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the grounds include many tulip poplar, fir, and beech trees. The terraced gardens stretch down to the river. The property was most recently sold in 2010.
