Calling all volunteers!

The Visit Annapolis Visitors Center and Hammond-Harwood House are seeking new volunteers to join their teams! You are invited to attend a special volunteer presentation from each organization to learn about the available opportunities. At the open houses, you will meet current volunteers and hear why they choose to serve their community by giving back. Join both organizations for their presentations, or attend the one that interests you most, no pressure!

Volunteer at Hammond-Harwood House

The Hammond-Harwood House, a National Historic Landmark, was built in 1774. It was the final work of architect William Buckland. With its carved doorway entrance, formal rooms, and elegant scale, the building blends the artistry of the finest Anglo-Palladian architecture with American sensibility, and houses original period furniture and works of art.

Volunteer Duties
