Hammond-Harwood House is the Jewel of Annapolis, the grandest Colonial house in the town, preserved intact since 1774. It was the last project of the renowned Colonial architect William Buckland. In addition to its magnificent, perfectly preserved architecture inside and out, this National Historic Landmark contains an outstanding collection of John Shaw furniture and Charles Willson Peale paintings.


The mission of the Hammond-Harwood House Association is to preserve, for public education and enjoyment, the architecturally significant Hammond-Harwood House museum and its collection of fine and decorative arts.
