What a lovely place! Annapolis is truly a historic city and you feel like you've been transported back to the 1700's in this house. The tour was great and the garden is so beautiful. This is a perfect place for all ages!

Especially cool things to see: the John Shaw/William Faris floor clock in the dining room, the incredible kitchen with faux foods, the Paca silver, The Paca bed upstairs, The Charles Wilson Peale paintings, The Lord Baltimore hibiscus, purple asters, and more.

Do not leave Annapolis until a tour of this house has been taken! Beautifully maintained home and gardens. Portraits of the family and period pieces. This museum home is very easy to walk to from historic downtown Annapolis.
