Tradition maintains that the original log house at Tusculum was built in 1747 by American patriot Henry Griffith. Henry Griffith was a prominent Marylander who was Justice of the Lower Court of Frederick County, Moderator of the Hungerford Tavern meeting in 1774, and Member of the Annapolis Convention that formed the Association of Freemen of Maryland. Griffith also witnessed the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Today it is a retreat for celebrations of all kinds – whether it be a wedding, a corporate function, or a family weekend away (but close to home)
Boasting a beautiful pool, lush and vast grounds, many interesting artwork installations, and a bevy of other amenities – it truly is a destination getaway in the heart of Maryland.

Ceremonies are held in front of the gorgeous Aurora installation on the grassy lawn, followed by receptions in the original house or in the Hay Barn – an absolutely beautiful indoor “barn” complete with a full bar, game room, and movie theater!

Our food highlight this week is one that is fairly new to our menu- poke bowls!!
Guests choose their own protein (or none), type of rice or grain, and then can add any number of vegetables, fruit and sauces. Because of the number of options, this versatile dish is perfect for events with multiple dietary concerns; vegans, gluten-free, dairy free, vegetarian, pescatarian, all can build their own custom bowls. While it’s great as a self serve station, it can also easily be transitioned into an action station, with staff building the dish per the guest requests.
