Celebrate all things Maryland! On Saturday, visit the William Paca House and Garden and find the house full of excitement and conversation as the Pacas and their friends,
portrayed by the Annapolis Living Historians, prepare to welcome visiting dignitaries. It is 1769, and Mr. and Mrs. Paca are welcoming Governor and Mrs. Robert Eden to Annapolis. Join the Pacas and their friends for the latest gossip and news as the entire town buzzes about the upcoming horse races! Then take a stroll through Mr. Paca's garden - you never know who you may meet!
Experience the wonder of the Old Line State with Maryland-themed crafts and games for visitors of all ages.
At Hogshead, the colonial tradespeople of Annapolis have been hard at work and their skills will be on display.
You’ll find local craftspeople sharing their skills at carpentry, baking, spinning, printing, and more. You can even help sew a replica of the John Shaw Flag, Maryland's first flag for the new United States!
On Sunday, take a half-hour guided tour of the William Paca House for a special price of just $1 and explore Mr. Paca’s 2-acre pleasure garden.
Then be sure to stop by Hogshead for more hands-on living history. Visit with Catherine Futier at Hogshead (portrayed by Nastassia Parker), a free black woman of Annapolis who took in laundry and mending in the 18th century.
Cost: $1 for the William Paca House and Garden; Free for Hogshead
Walk-ups welcome; No pre-registration is needed.
