Holiday Open House & Greens Sale

December 4, 2020

In the spring of 1825 Mrs. Frances Loockerman decided to create a very special boxwood garden behind her mansion on Maryland Avenue. The “box walk” was planted in the shape of a heart. Since 1953 the museum’s many volunteers have created special holiday boxwood wreaths. This year you can decorate your home for the holidays with our festive Boxwood Collection! Crafted from boxwood grown in the historic Hammond-Harwood House garden! On Friday, December 4 the beautiful carved front doors of Hammond-Harwood House will be opened and guests will be welcomed into the house to be the first to see the decorated rooms. The party will continue in the historic kitchen, where delectable festive treats can be paired with a variety of fine wines. Call 410 263 4683 extension 10 or email info@hammondharwoodhouse.org to reserve your unique Festive Boxwood Wreaths and Trees! Volunteer opportunities available.

Secret Garden Tour

June 6, 2020

In the first weekend of June each year, the Hammond-Harwood House organizes the Secret Garden Tour: The tour, in its 20th year, is a tradition in Annapolis and is looked forward to by those of us who love gardens. The gardens on this tour are true secrets as they are all private gardens hidden behind fences, in backyards, or down alleyways. Each garden is different and reflects the garden owner’s desires for beauty and a calm place to relax in our fast paced world. They are private oases and not often seen by the public. This is your chance to peek behind fences, go into backyards, and walk down alleys to examine these hidden gems.
