Friday Photo: All in Another Family

This house doesn’t look like it has much in common with the house I posted last week – it’s certainly  smaller, and is located in the heart of downtown Annapolis rather than on a spacious estate. But like Doughoregan Manor, the Sands House is still occupied by a descendant of the family who lived there in the 18th century. Ann Jensen lives in and gives tours of the home, and I highly recommend it. The Sands family never threw anything anyway, so there is an amazing assortment of items from the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries. More information can be found here.
