Historic Ellicott City Decorator Show House Preview Party
Date: 9/22/2017
Time: 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm
Location: 4130 Chatham Rd., Ellicott City, MD, 21042 (View Map)

Description: 17 talented local interior designers are almost ready to unveil the interior of Historic Ellicott City, Inc.’s Decorator Show House. Guests of an exclusive Preview Party will get a sneak peak on Friday, September 22, 2017 from 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm at the historic 200-year-old estate, “White Hall”. Built prior to 1810, White Hall served as a hospital for American troops during the War of 1812 as well as the home of Maryland’s 30th Governor, Thomas Ligon in 1854. In the 1890s, a bolt of lightning partially destroyed portions of the building that were then rebuilt in 1901. The home was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977. Local folklore maintains that the home is haunted! The current owners report that doors slam shut on their own and strange smells suddenly appear and disappear. Interior designers have masterfully redesigned 26 unique spaces in the mansion representing each designer’s style, personality, and taste blending contemporary design with the traditional history of White Hall. Furnishings, accents and art pieces on display will be featured for sale with an “early bird” special shopping opportunity. Guests will enjoy catering from Chef’s Expressions.
