Peggy Stewart House Tour: An Exclusive Opportunity!

Date: Saturday, October 12, 2024

Location: Peggy Stewart House, Annapolis (address provided after registration)

Time: 11:00 am (EDT) - 12:00 pm (EDT)

Join Historic Annapolis for a rare opportunity to tour the privately-owned Peggy Stewart House!

In October 1774, the people of Annapolis discovered that the brigantine, the Peggy Stewart, contained contraband tea that violated the colonists’ non-importation resolution. In response to public outrage, ship owner Anthony Stewart was forced to burn the Peggy Stewart with the tea onboard down to the waterline – with sails and colors still flying! The dramatic burning of the Peggy Stewart heightened the divide between American patriots from those loyal to the King.

Visitors will get a behind the scenes look at the 1760’s Georgian home once occupied by Anthony Stewart that was at the center of conflict. Learn more about other notable occupants and how the Revolution unfolded in Annapolis through this special tour, which shares the details of this pivotal moment in American history.
