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.

Lenna Lane, a docent and Rich from the gardening staff made our visit to the Paca House the highlight of our trip to Annapolis. Both were knowledgeable and generous in giving us the answers to our questions. Their dialogue didn't sound hackneyed and they were obviously interested in engaging with their guests

Beautifully restored home and garden with painstaking care for authenticity. Grab a flyer from the visitor's ctr or booth and get a $2 discount. Reg admission is $10. You can also get just a garden ticket for $5.00. Horticulturist in the garden was very informative on unique varieties of herbs and other plants.

This garden was a real little gem. It is a beautiful recreation of Paca's original garden, in a formal 18th century style. Just lovely!

Just to hear about the heroic restoration alone is worth the trip. Excellent guide. Knows a lot about the house and answered all questions. But the gardens are unbelievable. Wonderful. Worth the eight dollar admission.

"Hidden Gardens" in Annapolis. We had our Memorial Day weekend wedding reception in the garden. The house and garden are amazing. many of our local guests didn't know about the gardens behind the historic home. The home and gardens are a must tour while in Annapolis. The home was William Paca's a singer to the Declaration of Independence.

Beautiful gardens although the heat of the day kept us from too much wandering there. Nice little gift shop, well priced. Mansion tour was excellent and interesting. Good attention to period detail. Well trained, articulate and friendly docent -- great job Rachelle!

Perhaps my expectations were too high. After all, we visited near the garden end of August. (I should note that we did not tour the house, only the garden). There's a $5.00 charge per person to enter the garden. It took us perhaps 30 minutes to walk through it. Described as a British formal garden by the lady working there,... More
