William Paca House And Gardens

William Paca House And Gardens

The Historic Annapolis Foundation rescued this property from demolition in the 1960s. It had been used as the home of a signer of the Declaration of Independence before changing hands multiple times in the 19th century, even being used as part of Carvel Hall, a hotel. Today there are 45-minute tours of two floors of the home, available every hour, and visitors can also stroll through the gardens.

We hope you enjoy our work.
