My Hometown: Annapolis, Maryland


William Paca House

Annapolis is the state capital, and there are many opportunities to learn about our rich history. After the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1783, Annapolis served as the nation's temporary capital. We've been to the sites as a family, and the boys have gone on school trips. The home of William Paca, one of Maryland's four signers of the Declaration of Independence and the state's onetime governor, was modeled after an 18th-century English country villa. Visitors to this National Historic Landmark can tour the beautiful brick buildings and gorgeous gardens.
