Get a behind-the-scenes look at the James Brice House, an iconic 5-part colonial mansion in Maryland dating back to 1774. In a special bonus lecture, walk through the house on a prerecorded virtual tour with Historic Annapolis preservationist Michael Day. Day will explore the daunting task of researching, investigating and painstakingly restoring the mansion to its original appearance in 1774.

Mostly shrouded in mystery for decades, the James Brice House Restoration Project will allow it to be open to the public like it never has before. Of course, no tour of the Brice House would be complete without some discussion of the spirits that still walk its halls and climb its staircases...or not.

Live Q&A with Michael Day will follow the virtual video tour.

This talk will be recorded! By signing up online, you'll be able to join the event Tuesday evening and receive a link to the closed-captioned recording as soon as it's ready.
