A working state house in progress! Fasinating

The State House is not just a historic sight, it is a working historic sight! Very interesting for political and historical buffs!!!

The gardens are incredible, not extensive as they're in the heart of the city but very lovely 2 1/2 acres. The home is very nice and the tour is fairly interesting, though certainly not the best tour I've had. Worth seeing.

Visiting the William Paca House and Garden was the highlight of our trip to beautiful Annapolis. And that is saying a lot! We loved everything in Annapolis, but the William Paca House really stands out. My husband and I visited near the end of the day, and, as no other visitors were there at the time, we got a private...

A beautifully restore Georgian designed home built between 1763 - 1765 and the surrounding colonial gardens are a wonderful place to visit during a stay in Annapolis. There are two tours of the house available for those interested, either 1/2 hour or 1 hour. The gardens are a self guided tour and changes seasonally.

My husband and I were exploring the historic downtown of Annapolis on morning after breakfast and came upon the William Paca House (and Gardens). We decided that now was as good a time as any to take a tour! We were lucky enough to have a one-on-one tour with a lovely woman who was a terrific guide!! Although the original... More

This was the private home of one of our founding fathers and the mansion and gardens are the height of historic beauty!

Walking around downtown shops & restaurants we decided to also catch the house tour. Wow, so informative & fun. My teenage boys were truly impressed & regarded this as a fun learning experience. Garden was beautifully kept & house was just magnificent. The historic society has really put excellent effort in restoring & maintaining this house. Loved it!!

I will start by saying we enjoy touring historic houses and have been from Maine to California visiting historic areas and homes and have never felt so unwelcome or spoken to so rudely as we were by the person at the desk at this place. It was freezing cold rain that morning, had to park 5 blocks away, fed the... More

What a beautiful, amazingly-restored home.....and the gardens will certainly add to your enjoyment too. You can tour the gardens free of charge, but do yourself a favor and take a guided tour of the Wm. Paca Home, which includes a tour of the home and time (on your own) in the gardens.(Tour price is $10/person, but there is a $2/person... More

Enjoyed the guided tour of the house and strolling the gardens on our own after. Always love to see history preserved and commend their efforts to do so. The gardens seem like a beautiful place to have a wedding. Lovely place to spend a little relaxation time, too.
