Mount Harmon is the crown jewel of heritage tourism in the upper Chesapeake, and helps to define the colonial history of the region. Friends of Mount Harmon offers an array of activites including Historic Plantation Tours; a visiting School Program; Special Events Programming, a FOMH Membership Program; and volunteer opportunities.
The plantation hosts two annual events each year, which celebrate Mount Harmon's unique history and Chesapeake Bay roots, and are not to be missed – the Colonial Plantation Picnic (the first Sunday in June) and the Bull and Oyster Roast (the first Saturday in October) as well as a Yuletide Manor House Tour (the first weekend in December).
Mount Harmon is available for weddings, private functions, and corporate events, and is a spectacular setting for any occasion.
Mount Harmon also has numerous opportunities for volunteers to get involved with this Chesapeake Bay oriented historic and natural resource. Volunteer docents are always needed to assist with the tour, visitor and special event programs. Volunteer activities and opportunities are also available to help with the gardens, grounds, and nature trails of the plantation. Each year Friends of Mount Harmon partners with the Sassafras River Association to conduct a shoreline clean up of the plantation's waterfront. S.R.A. also sets up a booth at the annual picnic to promote environmental stewardship of the watershed.
