Tour the William Paca House with a Colonial
ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND, Monday, March 18, 2013Living History returns to the William Paca House one Sunday a month. Interpreters will give the guests a look at a way of life as seen through the eyes of a Colonial, whether genteel, middling, or servant! “The stories will expound upon the practical usage of museum artifacts and interpreted rooms from their character’s perspective while not dwelling completely on them for sake of the storytelling process,” says Scotti Preston, head of Living History with Historic Annapolis. She added, “You will feel as natural in the rooms you tour as the interpreters do, or don’t, themselves.”
What better backdrop to meet Colonials than in the William Paca House? Tour for nearly an hour with Mr. Paca himself and hear about his triumphs as well as his challenges. Perhaps by meeting with Baker/Herbalist Annabella M. Sneed, known to most as Nan, you’ll find a way to treat the ailment you’ve been keeping a secret. Clerk Duckett will be on hand with news only someone who records the town’s affairs would have and Mrs. Ferguson the Tavern Keeper who moonlights as the Paca Housekeeper whenever needed, has a story you’ll want to hear too. Cook, the Paca’s favored cook, knows things about the household that even the Pacas don’t.
The William Paca House Interpreter Tours are at 186 Prince George Street, Annapolis on the first Sunday of the month. Tours are conducted each hour on the half hour, beginning at 12:30 pm. The last tour is at 3:30 pm. General admission is $10.
