A Very Maryland Yuletide
Join the Hammond-Harwood House Museum for a special Holiday season where art, design, and the beautiful state of Maryland come together. Local garden clubs create an inspirational floral design with faux and dried pieces inspired by the period room’s architecture and collections. Decorating has been a yearly tradition since 1953 and we invite you to enjoy Annapolis’ architectural jewel during this festive season.
The party will continue in the historic kitchen, where delectable festive and historic treats can be paired with a variety of fine wines and wassail.

A Taste of History with Joyce White
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. Decorate your home for the holidays with our festive Boxwood Collection, crafted from boxwood grown in the historic Hammond-Harwood House garden!
Wreath Pre-orders still available.
