Annapolis Historic District
Annapolis has served as the capital of both the Colony/Province and the State, along with being the county seat of Maryland's third county, Anne Arundel County, and is one of the first planned cities in colonial America. Many elements of the original town plan, surveyed in 1695, and about 120 of the 18th century buildings still remain. The Town has a lot to offer so check out Your Annapolis Town Advisor for more details.
Throughout the year, Historic Annapolis organizes a number of exciting and fun special events that not only entertain and engage, but also helps provide critical financial support the organization needs to fulfill its mission. Check out their website for updated calendar of events.

For gardeners in Annapolis and throughout the region it’s a tradition. Each year, the William Paca Garden holds its annual plant sale on Mother’s Day weekend. Crowds line up to be the first through the gates. These discriminating gardeners are amply rewarded as hundreds of varieties of heirloom and unusual plants await them. Larkspur and holly hocks lend cheerful annual color to the cottage garden. Christmas rose, hardy begoinia, and foamflower delight the woodland gardener. Basil, dill and heirloom tomatoes suit the palate of the gardener who cooks.

Annapolis by Candlelight
Each year in early November, Historic Annapolis showcases privately-owned historic houses on its popular Annapolis by Candlelight tour. Visitors see how 21st-century Annapolitans care for and live in buildings built in the 20th, 19th, or 18th century. Each house is a reminder of the rich architectural and cultural heritage of Maryland’s capital city and illustrates the practical and aesthetic benefits of effective historic preservation.
