The Rising Sun Inn has been a farmhouse, an Inn and Tavern, a Stagecoach stop, and an important meeting place on the crossroads of American History. Located in central Anne Arundel County, Maryland, on the Washington Rochambeau Revolutionary Route, the Rising Sun Inn is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Whether you are retracing the steps of American patriots, a family ancestry fan, a teacher with a history lesson in the making, a lover of ghost stories, or a student of 18th and 19th century Americana, we are worth a visit.
The Rising Sun Inn is open for visits the Second Sunday of each month, between 1 and 4 p.m., enabling you to explore your interests with us.
Our docents are eager to share their knowledge with you about our Inn and her history and our resident ghosts, Randolph and Abigail, may even leave a cookie or two out for you.
Museum Guest fees: $5.00 per person. Please, do come in!
The 2017 Tipple and Toast Benefit Evening was a wildly successful event thanks to the very generous support of individuals and businesses across Anne Arundel County. From the great food to the talented entertainment and the wonderful auction items available to bid for, a fun evening was had by all.
Check out our Tipple and Toast page for a list of all our sponsors and to view event pictures.
Thank you again, and we'll see you next year!
