Especially cool things to see: the John Shaw/William Faris floor clock in the dining room, the incredible kitchen with faux foods, the Paca silver, The Paca bed upstairs, The Charles Wilson Peale paintings, The Lord Baltimore hibiscus, purple asters, and more.

Do not leave Annapolis until a tour of this house has been taken! Beautifully maintained home and gardens. Portraits of the family and period pieces. This museum home is very easy to walk to from historic downtown Annapolis.

Really enjoyed our visit to the William Paca house and gardens. We took the whole house tour which gave a glimpse of the life of a well-off family during colonial times. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. We took a nice self-guided stroll...More

We visited on a weekday and found street parking immediately in front of the house, but it isn't far from a public parking garage. The staff is very nice. Mr. Paca (apparently pronounced pehka) signed the Declaration of Independence (look under John Hancock's signature). The...More

I walked over from the Downtown area. There really is no good parking. You will probably have to park a couple blocks away or by the pier. Sometimes you find parking along the shops, but I would no suggest parking there... More
