Museum Store Move Update
 
The move of the Museum Store to 99 Main Street is progressing faster than expected! Over the last week we have held an "Historic Sale," which placed lots of merchandise on a 50% clearance sale. There are still great buys, so stop on by 77 Main Street.

Painters from Bay Country Painters have been busy day and night in 99 Main Street painting the entire first floor, bookshelves, and tables. Today movers arrived to help carry boxes of books, the cash wrap station and more shelving units. 

We are hoping to have the Museum Store at 99 Main Street open by September 24!  We will keep you posted.  In the meantime, mark your calendars for September 28. 

We will hold a grand opening celebration all day with special discounts for members!

Historic Hauntings Tours

Fridays and Saturdays in October, 2013

This year instead of heading to the usual Haunted House full of unconvincing tricks, come with Historic Annapolis and Watermark on a special ghost tour of Annapolis during the festive month of October. This special Historic Hauntings tours takes guests inside one of Annapolis' most notorious houses - the William Paca House and in to the sick room where many entered but some never escaped alive. Only our ghoulish guides can bring you inside this haunted home after dark. No Annapolis visit is complete without a haunted tale or two.
