Hear Period Music

Event Date: 
March 23, 2013 - 2:00pm - 4:30pm

Hear and waltz to the tunes popular in the early 19th century, including the early English gentlemen’s club song that gave music to Key’s famous words in The Star-Spangled Banner. The Weems Creek Jammers provide the music. The Revolutionary-era home’s dining room provides plenty of space for waltzing.
    This home of signer of the Declaration of Independence Samuel Chase remains a residence, as its last private owner willed it to a board of trustees to maintain as a home for elderly women, who “needed relief from the vicissitudes of life.” Six to eight independent ladies of all means live in the historic house to this day.

2-4:30pm every half-hour: free. Chase-Lloyd House, 22 Maryland Ave., Annapolis: 443-994-1830 (Carol Kelly)
