Upcoming private tour of Annapolis

If you're in the Mid-Atlantic region this next month there is an upcoming tour of Annapolis that you may be interested in checking out. Hosted by the Mid-Atlantic chapter of the ICAA, this private tour will feature 3 notable structures with excellent guides and will also include lunch; all together a nice day 'out' in beautiful Annapolis!
The tour will start with a private showing of the newly restored Old Senate Chamber in the Maryland Capitol building dating to 1772. The rooms have been restored to their appearance in 1783 when it was the meeting place of the national congress.
Afterwards stroll down the street to the Hammond  Harwood House, known as the 'Jewel of Annapolis', for a private tour. The house is one of the most important houses from the Colonial period dating to 1773 and designed by William Buckland.  It is the earliest American house still standing in the Palladian style -copied almost directly from Palladio's 'I quattro libri dell'architettura'.  Lunch will be served in the garden catered by Annapolis favorite 'Chick & Ruths'.
After lunch the group will cross the Severn river to the Ferry Farms neighborhood which has stunning views of downtown Annapolis.  There tour a spectacular private house designed by Good Architecture with interiors by Mona Hojj and constructed by Winchester Construction.  Hope to see you on this spectacular tour on Saturday, May 14th 2016- tickets are limited so buy yours today HERE.  Read more about this event and others on the ICAA events page HERE.
