Learn About a Local Landmark at the William Paca House & Garden
The pristine William Paca House & Garden is an immaculately restored Georgian mansion in the bustling center of Annapolis’ Historic District. Take some time to experience the 18th-century life of lawyer (and signee of the Declaration of Independence) William Paca as you browse through his breathtaking home. Walk through the parlor, kitchen, grand foyer and many bedrooms, getting a true sense of what it was like to be a part of the high-society of Annapolis during the 1700s. Along with a tour of the house, visitors should also make time to wander around the carefully manicured 2-acre garden.
The house and garden is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Admission for adults is $10 and includes a docent-led tour of the property. Tours take place hourly on the half-hour, last approximately 40 minutes, and encompass two floors of 18th-century history. Recent guests agreed that staff and tour guides were pleasant and generous with their time, and more than willing to answer questions about the house and grounds.
