Maryland Day 2022 Celebration at William Paca House

Mar 15, 2022 | Annapolis

Celebrate Maryland Day 2022 in Annapolis at the William Paca House and Garden and Waterfront Warehouse on Friday, March 25th. Historic Annapolis (HA) is hosting the event and admission is free.

HA’s motto vows to “Preserve. Protect. Connect.” Founded in 1952, the nonprofit organization’s mission is the preservation and protection of Annapolis’ history. The non-profit organization also organizes events and provides tours, engaging visitors and locals alike with the area’s rich heritage.

William Paca House and Garden

Named a National Historic Landmark in 1971 and subsequently restored by HA, the William Paca House is an 18th-century Georgian mansion located in the historic district of Annapolis. Its picturesque garden lies on two acres, and it was restored to its original grandeur by employing archaeology and the backdrop of a 1772 painting by Charles Wilson Peale.

Spanning a small pond, a bridge adorned with Chinese-inspired latticework leads to Paca’s Summerhouse. During pleasant days in the spring and summer, Maryland Governor William Paca and his family entertained visitors from the top floor so they can enjoy the view of the garden below. Situated in an area called “the Wilderness” on Paca’s property, the Summerhouse sits among paths that meander through an intricate garden.

Waterfront Warehouse

After touring the Paca House, attendees can also visit the Waterfront Warehouse, a rare surviving example of its type of structure built in the 18th century. A guide will share stories of the city’s waterfront and the people who worked there over two and a half centuries ago. The building will display a model of Annapolis during the colonial era that features an interesting birds-eye view.
