Historic: London Town Park and Gardens

A once-thriving seaport just south of Annapolis on the South River, London Town's fortunes declined dramatically after the Revolution; by the end of the 19th century, it had pretty-much disappeared. Archaeological excavations continue to uncover bits and pieces of a town that was once considered for Maryland's capital. The 23-acre Historic London Town and Gardens site, in southern Anne Arundel County, includes the 1764 William Brown House (pictured, also known as the London Town Publik House), plus reconstructed Colonial gardens and buildings. --Chris Kaltenbach 839 Londontown Road, Edgewater historiclondontown.comAmy Davis, Baltimore Sun
