Want to learn a bit about Maryland’s dairy history and how to make butter? Be sure to watch DISCOVERING DAIRY, the latest episode in the COOKING UP HISTORY WITH HAMMOND-HARWOOD HOUSE series of educational videos. This fun and educational video, produced by A Taste of History with Joyce White, is designed for children, ages 6-10 years old--but with three cute helpers (2 super cute little girls and an equally adorable little dog), it can be enjoyed by anyone! Dairy is the perfect theme for March because it honors spring, a season associated with dairy production, and also recognizes HHH’s direct ties to the dairy industry in Maryland. The builder of the c.1774 house, Matthias Hammond, lived at Howard’s Adventure, a plantation located in Gambrills where there is little doubt dairy products were produced there, most likely by enslaved women. In addition, in 1913 the property became the dairy farm for the United States Naval Academy, was then home to the Horizon Organic Dairy Farm, and even now remains a dairy farm operated by the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks. This educational video is geared for children, aged 6 -10, but can be enjoyed by anyone, even adults. A brief history of butter and cheese is sketched, and instructions for how butter was made by hand in the 18th and 19th centuries is also provided. Instructions for making your own butter using multiple methods is also given. Finally, the types of cheeses imported into Maryland in the 18th and 19th centuries is explored, with a focus on Pineapple Cheese.

The original owner of the Hammond-Harwood House was a young man named Matthias Hammond. Matthias likely never made the impressive residence on Maryland Avenue his primary residence; however, he was the one who commissioned skilled British-born architect William Buckland to design the home in 1774. So, without Matthias Hammond the story of the Hammond-Harwood House would never have happened. From records we can ascertain that Hammond spent the majority of his life on his family’s plantation in modern day Gambrills, Maryland. This property was known as Howard’s Adventure. In this video you will learn more about this property and the life of Matthias Hammond.
Back in April, the Culture Quest team visited the Hammonds House Museum in the Historic West End Atlanta community. In a city such as Atlanta, if you are not a tourist, these type of historic landmarks often get overlooked. Seldom do we realize all the history that surrounds us. While we were at the Hammonds House Museum we played around with the camera a little bit, and captured some footage. I was able to make a smooth little edit with the clips! I hope you enjoy it! Wherever you live, I challenge you to visit an African American Historical site in your city and tell us about it in the comments! There is always something new to discover about our culture! God be with you! D.Wilson If you like this video, be sure to subscribe and sign up for notifications!

If you have been inside the historic kitchen at the Hammond-Harwood House you have seen the museum’s extensive collection of kitchen implements, including the copper items (fig 1) that glisten above the venerable old hearth. These items make an artistic picture; however, there are more benefits to them than meets the eye. Copper has long been admired for its beauty and has a variety of uses including jewelry, makeup, and building material. In the Renaissance painters like Leonardo DaVinci used copper as canvas, and in 18th century America artists like Boston-based John Singleton Copley (1738-1815) produced miniatures on copper, which he called portraits “in Little”. In this post you will learn about the intersection of decorative arts and health, and why the materials around you matter now more than ever.
Open Hearth Cooking at Riversdale House Museum
For a town that is heavily invested in its past, both as a source of great pride as well as tourism, the COVID crisis has taken a major toll on Annapolis's historical and cultural institutions. Forced to close their doors in mid-March, these sites have certainly paid the price financially, but the real cost has been to their core mission. They simply can't carry them out that well when their doors are closed. Thankfully, some of those doors are slowly, carefully opening again. And one of the most recent is the Hammond-Harwood House, the city's monument to colonial design on Maryland Avenue. That is one reason that the Spy thought it was a good idea to check in with Barbara Goyette, its executive director. It was a great opportunity to remind ourselves of what an extraordinary place it is and how much we've missed it.

This is a documentary on the John Wright Stanly house, that was built in the early 1780's. There was a lot of information provided but my time constraints left me with having to cut out good information.
