Sands House: This house has been in the family some 239 years and is a repository of things left behind by six generations. You will be welcomed to this private home of the Sands family by Ann Jensen, great-great-great-great-granddaughter of John and Ann Sands.
The kitchen of the
Hammond-Harwood House, a grand Anglo-Palladian
house built in 1774 by one of the America's first true architects,
Maryland's State House, which is the oldest state house in
continuous legislative use in the country and the place
where George Washington resigned his commission as commander-in-chief from the Continental Army.
The Maryland Inn, built in 1772,
is the first structure in Annapolis designed to be a hotel, and
not just a house that could serve interchangeably as a residence,
shop or tavern. We won't leave here before enjoying some of their amazing popovers.
The amount of food consumed in total at all stops is enough to be considered lunch (and dessert) for the average person. Food costs and historic venue fees are covered in your tour ticket price. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
