    The Carrolls & Colonial Annapolis Day Trip
    April 29, 2019  |  8:30 AM5:30 PM

    SPECIAL DAY TRIP 

    Location: Homewood Museum Price: $65 for JHU Museums Members; $75 General Admission Purchase Tickets

    Please register at homewoodmuseum.eventbrite.com or by calling Homewood Museum: 410.516.5589.

    Join Homewood Museum's director and curator Julie Rose and assistant curator Michelle Fitzgerald as they explore the Carroll family's roots in Colonial Annapolis.

    The day will start with a visit to the Maryland State House, the oldest U.S. state capitol in continuous legislative use and where Charles Carroll of Carrollton—an eventual signer of the Declaration of Independence—served in the state Senate from 1781 to 1800.

    After the State House, attendees will walk one block to Treaty of Paris restaurant for a buffet lunch of Chesapeake favorites.

    Next will be a tour of the Charles Carroll House and Gardens of Annapolis, where Charles Carroll of Carrollton was born and lived, and where his son, Charles Carroll of Homewood, is buried. This house is also the likely birth site of William Ross, an enslaved waiting man who attended to Charles Carroll of Homewood. The day will conclude with a tour and tea of Brown's Tavern at Historic London Town & Gardens, a circa 1760s tavern at the center of a once-bustling Colonial tobacco port on the banks of the South River.


    The price includes round-trip transportation, admission, and lunch.


    The bus will depart promptly from Evergreen Museum & Library at 8:30 a.m. and return by 5:30 p.m. (traffic may affect these times). Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes as walking will be required.
