Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 11, 1971):
This five-part Palladian-style residence, built from 1763 to 1765, was the home of Maryland's famous patriot William Paca, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, member of the State convention that ratified the U.S. Constitution, and three time governor. The formal terraced gardens for which the estate was noted have been carefully recreated, in part by analysis of 18th century pollen found in the soil.

Condition:
There are no threats to the landmark.

Grant money from the state of Maryland funded repointing of the brick chimneys and replacement of the cedar shingle roof in FY 2008.
