Carvel Hall - "A Showcase of Colonial Charm"
Date: April 11, 2016
Location: St. John's College, Francis Scott Key Auditorium
Time: 8 pm - 9:30 pm
For much of the 20th century, the historic William Paca House was part of Carvel Hall, Annapolis' largest and finest hotel and an integral part of ever day life in the community. As the unofficial social center of the Naval Academy, Carvel Hall hosted "tea dances" for midshipmen and their "drags" and was featured in several Hollywood films. When the General Assembly was in session, Carvel Hall was home to many state legislators, who rubbed elbows and made deals over drinks in smoke-filled rooms. Senior Historian Glenn E. Campbell recalls some of the people and stories associated with an important local institution for more than six decades in a Maryland History Lecture Series presentation sponsored by the Friends of St. John's College and the Anne Arundel County Trust for Historic Preservation.
