“After cleaning the dirt from the crevices, it was apparent that the broken ceramic sherd just troweled from he ground had distinctive facial features, including deep set eyes and two fangs protruding from its lower jaw.”
Cornerstone at the Brice House, placed in 1767
The James Brice House is one of the largest and most elegant of Annapolis's historic homes. In an effort to restore the house back to its 1774 appearance, Historic Annapolis has taken on a multi-year restoration project of the James Brice House. As part of this project, they have also brought in archeologists and historians to uncover new secrets within the house.
