Where the Past Meets the Present

Across the South River, about eight miles from downtown Annapolis, is Historic London Town and Gardens, a twenty-three acre park featuring history, archaeology, and horticulture on the South River in Edgewater, Maryland.

Part of the Four Rivers Heritage Area, this fascinating site combines history, archaeology, and horticulture. Walk through a historical house from 1760. Glimpse an active, ongoing archaeological investigation in search of the "lost town" of London. Roam an eight-acre Woodland Garden on a one-mile trail bursting with native plants and exotic species. The seasonal Ornamental Gardens overlook the South River, a magnificent sight. 

For an unforgettable visit that combines history, archeology, and horticulture, come to Historic London Town and Gardens. Check the events calendar for family-friendly interpretive programs and events that occur here throughout the year. Brown House at London Town
