Museum of Historic Annapolis
The Museum of Historic Annapolis at 99 Main Street is the perfect first stop where you can begin your discovery of Annapolis. The museum features the new exhibition, Annapolis: An American Story, which uncovers and explores dramatic stories of Annapolis and its diverse people – revolutionaries, visionaries, and champions in our nation’s continuing quest for liberty and justice – who helped to shape our American story across more than 400 years.
William Paca House and Garden
Visit this National Historic Landmark, built in the 1760s for William Paca, one of Maryland’s four Signers of the Declaration of Independence. The five-part Georgian mansion and expansive colonial garden were carefully restored by Historic Annapolis, and today is recognized as one of the finest 18th-century homes in the country.
Enjoy a guided house tour that details the life of William Paca, the inner workings of an upper-class household, and the daily lives of the enslaved laborers during the Revolutionary era. Also located in the house is the new self-guided exhibit, We Hold These Truths: Maryland’s Four Signers and the Declaration of Independence that reveals ‘truths’ of all sorts about the Declaration and the Maryland men who signed it in 1776.
Finish your visit with a self-guided stroll through the beautiful garden grounds featuring native and heirloom plants, formal parterres, naturalistic wilderness garden and colonial kitchen garden.
