We toured the first floor of the house and the gardens. Our tour guide , Jenna was outstanding! She brought the history of William Paca & family to life in an animated interesting manner...what a treat. The recreated gardens and summer house are lovely. This is definitely worth the admission price and a bit of your time. Go!

We enjoy visiting colonial-era sites and houses. The Paca house is handsome and has everything in period, not stuffed with anachronisms. The family history was interesting. The gardens are not spectacular but are pleasant, with a tiny stream running through -- a box turtle was swimming by when we visited. The garden house or folly at the foot of the... More

Here's something for every age group. Adults and kids will enjoy knowledgeable guides taking them thru the house and fantastic gardens with their own views. Fitting too that this house is used at times to swear-in new citizens as the home of a signer of our Declaration of Independence.

We had come from the tour of the Naval Academy and were a little tired so we did not go into the house but did tour the gardens. They were lovely and very peaceful. It was a delight to sit after the tour of the academy. There are several areas to explore and we enjoyed our visit.

It took me three trips to the William Paca House and Gardens to be able to take part in a tour (they were closing or had an event scheduled) but when I finally got to our the house and gardens it was well worth the wait. I was the first person there when they opened and so I had a... More

We (me, my sisters, my mom and my nephew) visited the William Paca House and Gardens on June 25th, 2015 and they were both beautiful. Our tour guide for the house, Andrew Smith, was wonderful. He was very interesting and added his own flair to the tour. My mom uses a wheelchair when we are doing a lot of walking... More

Very cool to walk through the old home. It really feels like you are in a time machine. The young man who was a tour guide had a lot of knowledge. Worth $8. The garden was gorgeous but there was a wedding scheduled so we had to rush through that portion.

The house tour is very informative and the guides are very knowledgable about the lives of the Paca family. there are many period furniture pieces in each of the rooms and the house is in beautiful condition. The gardens are a little lack luster and look like they need a little renovation and repair.

The Paca garden was disappointing in that much of the garden needed to be planted with additional flowering plants. I do understand that they are trying to recreate the garden as it was during Paca's life but more planting was definitely necessary. The rooms themselves were presented to be of the time, however were modern floor lamps necessary? Not worth... More
