“Historic gardens overlooking the South River”
Historic London Town and Gardens is a 23-acre museum and park that features history, archaeology, and horticulture. The Historic area includes the circa 1760 William Brown House, a National Historic Landmark, reconstructed colonial buildings, and an-going archaeological investigation in search of the "lost town" of London. It has alo an eight-acre Woodland Garden of native plants and exotic species arranged along a one-mile trail before enjoying the seasonal Ornamental Gardens overlooking the South River. Its modern Visitor Center and Pavilion support weddings, business meetings, family events, as well as school and group tours.
An often overlooked site, they provide an interesting overview of a once prosperous town relegated to obscurity when tobacco inspecting sites were realigned and a new road built that bypassed the town. Relegated to an alms house and an insane asylum, it saved this impressive home from destruction. Wonderful gardens to enjoy. Great site for a wedding with it's river views. Good interactive displays and enthusiastic guides. Worth the detour from Annapolis.
