Hammond-Harwood House Museum


Monday through Sunday, Noon to 4:30 pm, Tuesday Closed
The Hammond-Harwood House is a stellar example of classical 18th century architecture, a five part Anglo-Palladian mansion that features some of the best woodcarving and plasterwork in America. Located in Annapolis, Maryland, the Hammond-Harwood House (1774) is said to have the most beautiful doorway in Colonial America. The last project of the renowned architect, William Buckland, this National Historic Landmark contains an outstanding collection of John Shaw furniture and Charles Willson Peale paintings. The mission of the Hammond-Harwood House Association is to preserve, for public education and enjoyment, the architecturally significant Hammond-Harwood House museum and its collection of fine and decorative arts.
