Just one house, but it really tells a story.

I really liked the architecture, but the furniture blew me away. The presentation of history is accurate and concise.

I enjoyed seeing this house quite a lot and found the explanation of the type of architecture very interesting. The rooms were beautifully appointed, we were allowed to take photos - which was not true in many houses, and the "most beautiful door" was truly spectacular! I was a little disappointed in the guides who seemed anxious to get done... More

This is a lovely old house(17th century) to visit. Interesting details. Period furnishings. Noted for its lovely entrance doorway.

The docent was knowledgeable and the tour was just long enough to cover everything without getting boring. The oil paintings and orgininal furniture make this house well worth a visit.

The home is a step back in time and a wonderful place to learn about the local history of Annapolis.

One of the many Georgian mansions in town. Stop at the Visitors' Center between West and Northwest Streets for a map and suggestions. Spring and Fall bring our most beautiful weather but visit any time for a romantic getaway of great family trip. We suggest Gibson's Lodgings and Chick and Ruth's Delly as not-to-miss spots.

Just outside the Naval Academy when you exit from the Navy Chapel, it’s easy to miss, but well worth a visit. The guided tours go on the hour, but if you are a few minutes late, the nice docents will catch you up with the tour. It’s a interesting house, built in 1774 and never burned down or changed and...

We had this house on our schedule of things that we might want to see during our December visit to Annapolis, but the owner of the B & B where we were staying told us that it was a "must-do". Yep, he was right! We were lucky in that we toured the home on the last day of their "A... More

The Hammond Harwood house was an unexpectedly pleasant find in "downtown"Annapolis. Located two blocks from Gate 3 to the U.S. naval Academy, it is the rare historical house that still has the integrity of the original construction. The house was designed by a leading residential British architect of the times for a wealthy landowner according to an "academic" architectural model... More
