An example of what the wealthier colonial inhabitants of Annapolis enjoyed living in. Very knowledgeable guide. Small gift shop. Only available to visit with guided tour that lasts about 50 minutes.

Enjoyed visiting this home as they were getting ready for a Dutch Christmas. Our tour guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. They gave us a lot of interesting information about the house and its contents.

Fascinating tour of the home, highlighting aspects that were in use during the time when Austen was writing her novels. Inventive and insightful!
