A "Do Not Miss" Annapolis Site

What a beautiful, amazingly-restored home.....and the gardens will certainly add to your enjoyment too. You can tour the gardens free of charge, but do yourself a favor and take a guided tour of the Wm. Paca Home, which includes a tour of the home and time (on your own) in the gardens.(Tour price is $10/person, but there is a $2/person discount flyer right in the entrance hallway). It's unbelievable how beautifully both the home & gardens have been restored. We were very fortunate to have Janet Hall as our tour guide. Our tour actually was a bit longer than the usual hour time length........too much to see & admire in the home......and Janet was obviously really enthused about being part of it. So often, guided tours seem to go on forever, but this one ended much earlier than we wanted. We particularly enjoyed hearing about the restoration of the garden area, as sometime in the past, it had been totally covered by a huge parking lot that had been built for a hotel that was erected behind the Paca House. AMAZING to see how they rediscovered the gardens and totally restored them to what they had been during the 18th century!!!! Tours were being scheduled at the half hour when we visited there and there were a number of them offered throughout the day. We highly recommend that you tour this beautiful site.........so much history of the area to be learned if you do!

Enjoyed the guided tour of the house and strolling the gardens on our own after. Always love to see history preserved and commend their efforts to do so. The gardens seem like a beautiful place to have a wedding. Lovely place to spend a little relaxation time, too.

Lenna Lane, a docent and Rich from the gardening staff made our visit to the Paca House the highlight of our trip to Annapolis. Both were knowledgeable and generous in giving us the answers to our questions. Their dialogue didn't sound hackneyed and they were obviously interested in engaging with their guests
