We really liked Annapolis and the chance to learn more about American history. We liked the tour of the house. Our docent provided clear and concise information about William Paca and his house. What a great story about how the house was saved and restored. Each town and city should be proud of their own Historical Foundations and the great work that they provide.
The gardens were good to see but in August there wasn't much color. The main thing I like about them was hearing how they had been destroyed and covered but lovingly restored.

This attraction is not for everyone. In fact, the visitors who would truly appreciate it are those who enjoy history, design, architecture, gardening, and the like. My kids, not so much. The gardens in the rear yard, which are not visible from the street, are spectacular.

Our docent tried very hard to make the tour interesting. Not much is left of the original furnishings and you are asked to use your imaginaion for most of the tour. One of the highlights per our tour guide was the blue paint.

It was a rainy day and a wedding was going on, so we were limited to the time we had in the garden. The garden is lovely and worth seeing.

We love American history, so our visit to the Paca House was excellent. The gardens are peaceful and lovely, and we enjoyed learning about one of the signers of our Declaration of Independence - one we didn't previously know anything about.

we visited the garden in Aug after a long hot and dry summer yet it was still very nice. After a long morning of touring it was nice to sit in the cool shade of the garden an just rest. That in itself was worth it. To tour just the garden was $5 each but we choose to take the Paca estate tour. It was nicely done and our guide was knowledgable. If you have only time for one estate do this one because you can also do the garden. Remember tours of these estates may not be exciting for small children. Most rooms had a few window sills that you were allowed to sit on which was really nice after a long day.
