Event description

Description

When the last proprietary governor of Maryland, Sir Robert Eden, boarded a ship and left Annapolis on June 26, 1776, he left behind a town house that he had been carefully redesigning and furnishing. When he returned at the conclusion of the Revolutionary War, he found that his former house and possessions had been confiscated by the Council of Safety and used for the new state’s Governor’s Mansion. With the objects eventually scattered and the house demolished in the beginning of the twentieth century, the material remnants of Robert Eden’s time in Annapolis should have disappeared. Using archival and remaining physical evidence, Michelle Fitzgerald, The Americana Foundation Curatorial Intern for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, will reconstruct Robert Eden’s Annapolis residence, the Eden-Jennings House, and discuss the social and political motivations that impacted the house’s materiality over the course of its life.
