National Historic Landmark

In 1971 the US declared this 18th century Georgian mansion and 2-acre walled garden a landmark property thanks to its historical significance as the home of William Paca, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and architect of the property.

Garden wedding reception

Host a special event in this landmarked “pleasure garden” that features plants and unique design features of Colonial Maryland. From April to October, wedding receptions can be held in the spectacular garden and terraces, and a catering kitchen is available on site.


  • Are tours of the grounds available?

    Guided tours take 45 minutes and take place hourly on the half-hour with the first tour at 10:30 and the last tour is at 3:30. Group tours are also available if you call ahead. Note: the house is closed to tours in January.
  • What was the property before it became a landmark?

    William Paca sold the property in 1780 and it switched owners several times over the following decades. The property fell into disrepair after being a hotel for much of the 20th century. In 1965 it faced demolition, but thankfully preservationists worked hard to buy the property and restore to its original Colonial grandeur and today it is managed by Historic Annapolis.
