The pristine William Paca House & Garden is an immaculately restored 18th century Georgian mansion, and it was the home of a young lawyer, William Paca, who eventually became one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence and the governor of Maryland. Along with a tour of the house, visitors should make time to wander around the carefully manicured 2-acre garden.
Recent guests agreed that staff and tour guides were pleasant and generous with their time, and more than willing to answer questions about the house and grounds.
The house and garden is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. Admission for adults is $10 and includes a docent-led tour of the property. Recent visitors recommend grabbing a flier from the Visitors Center in order to get a coupon for $2 off the admission price.
