Scandalous Annapolis

August 20, 2020

This lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek walking tour is presented by a guide in the character of a colonial indentured servant who works odd jobs day and night to make ends meet – colonial style. During your walking tour in Historic Annapolis, you’ll hear scandalous anecdotes and jaw-dropping tales about what went on inside Annapolis’ famed homes and taverns. Colonial Founding Fathers, Annapolis gentry, renowned portrait artists, and regular folk, too, were all up to their tricks! There was a little revenge, murders, spying, drinking, political discord, and pleasures of the night. The tour ends at Rams Head Tavern for a beverage of choice (not included in tour). Stay to learn how an antique bed post got jammed into the ceiling over the bar!
