Burleigh, or Burleigh Manor, is a historic home located at Ellicott City, Howard County, Maryland built on a 2,300 acre estate. It is a Federal-style brick dwelling built about 1810, laid in Flemish bond. Also on the landscaped grounds are a stone smokehouse; a much-altered log, stone, and frame "gatehouse" or "cottage," and another log outbuilding, as well as an early-20th century bathhouse, swimming pool, and tennis court. The probable builder was Colonel Rezin Hammond (1745–1809), who constructed it for his grandnephew Denton Hammond (1785–1813). In 1914 the estate was owned by Mary Hanson Hammond with land totaling over 1,000 acres including the outbuildings and slave quarters. It is currently operated as a livestock shelter.
Centennial Lane was built in 1876 as a shortcut through Burliegh Manor property between Clarksville and Ellicott City.
