Wm. Paca House & Gardens Tour, 10:30 a.m. - Noon
This Georgian mansion was built in the 1760s by William Paca, one of Maryland’s four Signers of the Declaration of Independence and the state’s third Governor. It is recognized as one of the finest 18th-century homes in the country and a National Historic Landmark. Guided tours feature period furnishings and paintings, and the inner workings of an upper-class household in colonial and revolutionary Annapolis.
The gardens are painstakingly restored to their original splendor. Visitors can view native and heirloom plants while exploring the terraced landscape’s formal Parterres, naturalistic Wilderness, practical Kitchen garden and the latticework bridge over a fish-shaped pond.
