The Hammond–Harwood House is a historic house museum at 19 Maryland Avenue in Annapolis, Maryland, USA. Built in 1774, is one of the premier colonial houses remaining in America from the British colonial period (1607–1776). It is the only existing work of colonial academic architecture that was principally designed from a plate in Andrea Palladio's I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura (The Four Books of Architecture) (1570). The house was designed by the architect William Buckland in 1773–1774 for wealthy farmer Matthias Hammond of Anne Arundel County, Maryland. It was modeled on the design of the Villa Pisani in Montagnana, Italy, as depicted in Book II, Chapter XIV of Palladio's work. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1960, and is now managed by a non-profit organization as a museum.

  • Interesting facts about the house and families that lived there. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Not handicapped accessible.

  • We enjoyed the tour of the house. It's a beautiful house with a lot of nice furniture and period portraits. The guide was very informative.

  • Mary Anne and Dottie were incredibly personable and knowledgeable. They encouraged participation during our tour by giving us opportunities to share and discuss our observations of the collection. We could see their passion for the House in the personal anecdotes they shared. (Their recommendations for local spots were also excellent!) We highly recommend this experience for any visit to Annapolis!
  • Wonderful tour of the building and its occupants history dating to the late 1700's. Highly recommend the hour long tour - the time flies so does not feel long at all. Of note, for folks with difficulty standing/staying on their feet for long periods - take the 30min tour as all the antique furniture cannot be sat on.
