Referred to at times over the years as Rainbow Row the circa 1857 former City Hotel Annex presents a singular streetscape in the Annapolis Historic District to those passing by it on their way to church or perhaps breakfast.

Comprised of six Federal style narrow two bay rowhouses they originally did not have front porches for guests to sit out on, so as to take in the comings and goings of people making their way from Duke of Gloucester Street to Main Street back in the 19th century.

Currently their facades are painted in shades of blue, yellow, green, and white with each respective porch providing space enough for a chair or two to be placed on them for their residents to relax and enjoy the shade of a pleasant Sunday morning such as today’s.

Have a good day everyone,

Glenn
