About us … The Mansion


Historic Waverly Mansion is associated with many of the “founding families” of Maryland and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Nathan Dorsey, son of Colonel John Dorsey, built the main section of the mansion between 1756 and 1764. The property was later sold to Revolutionary War hero, Colonel John Eager Howard, governor of Maryland from 1788 to 1790. Colonel Howard gave the house and land to his son, George, who later also served as governor of the state (1831-33). George Howard and his wife, Prudence, a member of the Ridgeley family, named their estate after the popular Sir Walter. The Waverly Mansion is now one of the most historic Maryland wedding sites and is known for its charm, character, and ambiance.
