Secret Garden Tour

Secret Garden Tour

hammond harwood house logoHammond-Harwood House presents its annual Secret Garden Tour, based this year in the Murray Hill neighborhood. Proceeds benefit the Hammond-Harwood House, a 1774 Anglo-Palladian home on Maryland Avenue, and its museum collection of paintings, furniture, and colonial art.

The 2021 tour features private gardens in the Historic District. Murray Hill, the area between West Street and Spa Creek, holds a beautiful collection of homes built in various periods and architectural styles. The 130-year-old community with its tree-lined streets is the perfect setting for an afternoon of garden exploration. All the gardens featured in 2021 epitomize the goals of the home gardener: to have a beautiful space filled with flowers, trees, shrubs, grasses, and other garden elements, a space that is a pleasure to live in and inspirational to work in.

Annapolis Green’s NAPTOWN TAPs are coming out after over a year in storage for the tour. We will provide free, filtered water from our unique NAPTOWN TAP hydration station to guests who tour the gardens of historic Murray Hill. Don’t forget a reusable water bottle to show that you are a steward of our environment. Leave throw-away plastic water bottles behind and your planet will thank you.

Information and tickets.

smithsonian environmental research centerhistoric annapolis logoThe Smithsonian Environmental Research Center and Historic Annapolis present this story is about strategic location on a great estuary, human interactions with rich natural resources, and the founding history of the United States.

It is an evolving story built around the science of archaeology and the inferences of oral and written history for the 2,650-acre campus of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), five miles south of Annapolis and 25 miles east of Washington, DC. It relies upon volunteer citizen scientists who have been piecing together a fabric of place and time that is entirely local, yet it forms a quilt of context for America today.

The story extends back 3,000 years to the earliest people who gathered oysters from the Bay and developed an elaborate culture here, and it continues to the present with surprising new discoveries almost weekly.

Virtual lecture. Advance registration is required.
