Virtual Secret Garden Tour

Enjoy a Virtual Secret Garden Tour!

During the first weekend of June each year, the Hammond-Harwood House holds its Secret Garden Tour in a section of Annapolis. Hundreds of those who are curious about or love gardens have toured the secret gardens of Annapolis-- behind historic houses, down picturesque alleyways, or inside intriguing gates. 

This year a live event is not possible, so we are taking the event online. We are inviting gardeners to share photos of their own gardens and we are inviting everyone to tour the gardens online.

With the “stay at home” mantra ongoing, many of you have had an unprecedented opportunity to work on your own gardens. And we are having a lovely spring this year, so all these efforts are apparent. What a great time to share the results of the hours of planning, pruning, planting, weeding, mulching, and decorating.

Here is how to participate:

The Hammond-Harwood House is a museum of 18th century architecture and art standing as a testament to the importance of preservation to the residents of Annapolis, and America. Built in 1774, this National Historic Landmark presents a window into the lives of the people who built the house, lived in it, and ensured that it would be enjoyed by future generations for years to come. Tours of the House highlight its refined design, unique history, and incomparable collection of paintings by Charles Willson Peale and furniture by John Shaw.
