ELLICOTT CITY, MD – Howard County Executive Calvin Ball today announced that the County’s Department of Recreation & Parks’ Belmont Manor and Historic Park has once again been named a WeddingWire 2022 Couples’ Choice Award® winner. This is the third time Belmont has received the award in the past four years, only missing 2021 recognition due to COVID-19 restrictions.

This recognition is a testament to our Department of Recreation and Parks’ hard work, customer service, and attention to detail. The park maintenance staff continues to restore and maintain the property while the events staff ensures that the public may enjoy it for weddings, meetings, classes, camps, and other special events.

Located at 6555 Belmont Woods Road in Elkridge and nestled on 68 acres of rolling green hills, Belmont features a stunning tree-lined driveway, exquisitely decorated Manor House and pristine, formal gardens. The Manor House was built in 1738 and was a private home until 1962. It is one of the oldest colonial buildings remaining in Howard County and is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. In 2012, the County purchased the estate to ensure the property remained in the public trust. Belmont now hosts weddings, meetings and other special events.
