Christmas Around the World – in Annapolis

Christmas Around the World – Hammond Harwood House, Annapolis, Maryland

Visit Hammond Harwood House in Annapolis, this week, for their annual holiday season open house.  Local garden clubs have decorated various rooms of the historic house, built in 1774, to represent different Christmas traditions around the world. “Mexico” is the theme for our club.

Tours are available through December 31, between noon and 3 p.m., except Monday.  Regular tour prices apply – i.e., $7/adults, $6/seniors, and $4/kids. According to the website,  tours include an overview of the history and architect of the house, the families who lived there, and collections contained within the museum. Visitors may also visit the exhibition gallery and holiday greens sale, until all greens are sold

This annual holiday event is a fundraiser for Hammond Harwood House and a wonderful opportunity for local garden clubs to collaborate and show off their talents.  It’s a highlight of the holiday season for many families, and you don’t want to miss it.
