The Chase Home gets its name from its first owner, Samuel Chase, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence for Maryland and Supreme Court justice. The Chase Home is also known as the Chase-Lloyd House for the wealthy plantation-owning Lloyd family who lived here for generations after Edward Lloyd IV bought the half finished home from Samuel Chase. While still operating as an independent living facility for elderly woman today, the house also exists as a monument to Georgian architecture and an important part of American history.
The Chase Home is a unique among the many historic homes of Annapolis, in that it has always been a self-sustaining National Historic Landmark.
The mission of the Chase Home is to carry out the legacy of Hester Chase Ridout by her Will of 1886, by supporting women to overcome hardships, achieve stability and have safe housing; and utilize the Chase-Lloyd House to support this mission.
For more than 130 years, the Chase Home has been operating as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization to provide an independent living facility for women at the historic Chase-Lloyd House. The home is currently closed to residents for preservation and repair of the National Historic Landmark.
The Chase Home relies on donations to help fund operating costs associated with supporting women facing hardships and to preserve the historic home..
