We had a great tour of the William Paca house and gardens. The docent was very well informed and made the house's history come alive. The gardens were beautiful and peaceful.

Visiting this home and garden gives a nice picture of what it must have been like to live in such a house in the 18th century. The employees are very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. They decorate the home seasonally and show visitors what things would have been like when the home was inhabited by the Paca family. Highly... More

Nicest Garden in Annapolis open to the public. Inside you will find traditionally laid out Gardens, a small pond with a lovely Chippendale styled bridge and a garden Folly with a statue of Mercury on top. The gardeners work tirelessly pruning, planting and weeding the flowers. They occasionally have public concerts as well as many private events - weddings, etc.

This is the home of one of the 4 signers of the Declaration Of independence from Maryland. The home tour is very interesting as are the gardens. The guides are very knowledgeable.

Walking in to this beautiful home of a signer of the Declaration of Independence is a lot to take in. Yes George Washington did visit. The staff is very keen on getting you into the spirit of the house an the people that lived there. The gardens are some of the most beautiful in the country it is worth he... More

We enjoyed a beautiful wedding at this location. Everything about it was perfect except the parking. It is a nightmare but so many guests stayed in town we walked. The venue was amazing as was the people working there. So helpful and served a great meal. Dancing was enjoyed by all. What a setting.

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
