Hammond Harwood House


September 19, 1999|By Sloane Brown

It was a garden party where Mathias Hammond would have felt at home, especially because it was given at the Annapolis residence he built for himself in the late 1770s. About 220 years later, some 150 elegantly attired guests gathered in the garden of the Hammond Harwood House. They savored appetizers and aperitifs, and raised $31,000 for the restoration of the Georgian-style home, one of the oldest structures in the city.

Among those serenaded by both the B. J. Doyle jazz trio and the local crickets: Carter Lively, executive director of Hammond Harwood House; event committee chair Robert Giddings; honorary chair Sibyl Brown; committee members Ann Somers, Claire Purnell and Peggy Brock; HHH board chair Carol Hutchinson; board members Jane Bowen and Mary Waddington; auxiliary chair Louise Bell Devanny; Bob Henel, president of Annapolis Bank & Trust Co.; David Morrow, president of Maritime Insurance Services; Pam Chaconas, education director for the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra; and Linda Buckley, Realtor with Champion Realty.
