This Georgian mansion was built in the 1760's by William Paca, one of Maryland's four Signers of the Declaration of Independence and the state's third Governor. Carefully restored by Historic Annapolis beginning in 1965, today it is recognized as one of the finest 18th century homes in the country and a National Historic Landmark. The garden includes native and heirloom plants, terraced formal Parterres, naturalistic wilderness, and a practical kitchen garden.
Following the tour we will enjoy lunch at the Iron Rooster Restaurant, (12 Market Place, 410-990-1600) a short walk from the Paca House.
