Night was a perilous time in the early America as thieves, wayward travelers, and even evil spirits lurked around the corner for our early ancestors. Families in early America engaged in a process of shutting in barring the front door and retreating to the inner sanctity of family life. While others choose to frequent taverns and frolic in the night much to the distress of proper society.
On this interactive tour visitors will learn about what night was like during the early 19th century when the beautiful Frances Townley Chase Loockerman lived on the property with her eccentric husband Richard and their young family. Visitors will hear about the rise and fall of this Annapolis family and some interesting Annapolis Fourth of July traditions of yesteryear while under the cover of twilight in the Hammond-Harwood House.
