My girlfriend and I have a habit of checking out historic houses wherever we go. This one had a great tour full of fascinating history. I particularly like all the pieces that were tied to local and national history. We were there during Christmas, and we got to see how they might decorate for Christmas and learn how that relates...

I'm not one to take tours, I prefer self guided . But I have to say I really enjoyed the tour. Building has a rich history for many reasons that I won't go into. Well worth visit.

This is an Annapolis Gem. The docents are knowledgeble and the house has great historical significance not only for Annapolis but the US. Annapolis was the capital of the Colonies at the time it was built and Elias Hammond was a signer of the Declaration of Independance.

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and were the first to arrive. The tour was led by a very charming and knowledgeable gentleman, who led us both outside and inside the home to point out details. The home was built in the mid-1770s and is unique in North America in that it is the only colonial building designed and built... More

if you are into learning more about the history of Annapolis and it's forefathers after you day sailing on the Bay, then make a date to stop by this location. Tour guides are thorough and interesting. The house itself is wonderfully decorated, many of the rooms have authentic furnishings, some are period. If you are lucky enough to be in... More

Very well maintained with lots of furniture that is original to the early owner. Very well-informed guides take you on a very interesting tour of the house and times. Located but a short distance from the capital.

One of the five Colonial Golden Age of Annapolis mansions intact and within walking distance of each other (with the nearby State House from the same period). There is nothing else like this ensemble in America. Colonial Williamsburg is great in its own way, but the structures are reconstructions, relocations, and original structures in situ. The Hammond-Harwood House is also... More

Most people who visit Annapolis tend to walk around the city core. They venture up to the State Capital building, but not much farther. There is a street right off the State Circle called Maryland Avenue. Walk two blocks along one of Annapolis' quietest and most interesting streets, lined with neat little antique stores, and you will come to what... More
