The William Paca House Garden is actually several gardens in one, with formal sections separated by hedges. In winter the holly section is particularly pleasant and the boxwood section nearby provides a pleasing aroma. If you visit in spring or summer the flower sections (roses, annuals) should be very pleasant. The herb section has a very large and old rosemary... 更多
I LOVE this location! It's a five-part Georgian historic home of a signer of the Declaration of Independence built in 1763, filled with period artifacts including Charles Willson Peale paintings and John Shaw furniture. The docents are extremely knowledgeable and tell great stories about both local and national history, as well as the lives of wealthy Annapolitans, indentured and convict... 更多
Enjoyed learning about the history associated with this building and grounds. The tour was interesting & informative. The garden was very nice - a great visit! I would recommend adding to your itinerary!
We've attended a few events at the Paca House over the years, but just recently stopped in as we had an hour to kill before heading to something. It was a sleepy Monday afternoon and I was with my first-grade daughter. We just happened to catch a tour—and how lucky we were! Our guide was previously a history teacher—and made... 更多

We... 更多
The gardens are really lovely unless they are ruined by a wedding tent but you can still walk around and see the area. We also took a tour of the historic home and learned a lot about the Paca family and 18th century Annapolis. I highly recommend if you want to experience some history instead of shopping the day away.
They have guides available. Either in the house or in the garden. A lot of work has gone into the restoration of both garden and house. The stories of how folks entertained at that time and the history of the house are interesting. As we were on a walking tour of Annapolis. I do not know the cost of entrance.... 更多
This house is worth a stop. The formal gardens are impressive. Right outside the main gate at USNA. Take the time to see this beautiful colonial home.
