The New-Old Finish of the 1774 Hammond-Harwood House Front Door in Annapolis Maryland June 12th 2017

Last weeks Capital featured an article about the transformation of the 1774 Hammond-Harwood House front door from its white painted finish to a new “grain painted” one, that itself is considered to be original to the historic house according to a noted researcher. So with my historical architectural interest aroused I decided to checkout the progress of the project for myself during my Monday morning walk in Annapolis.

As such at 9 am this morning this is how I found the double entrance doors of Mr. Mathias Hammond’s grand house on Maryland Avenue – wow very authentic looking for a variety of reasons. Oh yes the door frame, its decorated carvings, transom, and pediment have been painted what is being referred to as a creme hue.

Anyway consider checking out the new-old look of the “most beautiful door in America” for yourself, its certainly worth any detour that you might incur in order to do so.

Have a great week,

Glenn
