In A Conversation with Thomas Jefferson, audiences eavesdrop and participate in a historical-themed chat with Thomas Jefferson, played by expert interpreter Bill Barker. Barker has impersonated Jefferson for nearly 30 years, inspired by both a physical likeness and keen interest in the rich social and political scene of Jefferson’s era. In a casual conversation-style presentation, Jefferson blends history lessons with themes that resonate with modern audiences. Topics range from slavery to the War of 1812, as well as still-relevant questions of economy and the separation of church and state. Audience members of all ages may get involved in the chat, testing Barker’s commitment to the character by asking challenging questions or tricking him into sharing which is his favorite Van Halen album.

About Historic Annapolis at St. John’s College
Historic Annapolis at St. John’s College preserves and celebrates the area’s rich social and political history with tours of the colonial city and its landmark homes. The nonprofit group restored the Paca House & Garden, National Historic Landmark, to its colonial-era glory so that visitors could wander the rooms and gardens and travel back in time to an era teeming with revolutionary political ideas and patriotism. A historical museum holds exhibits that illuminate the past, such as a six-foot-by-six-foot model of 18th-century Annapolis and a wormhole to Ben Franklin’s kite shop. At Hogshead at 43 Pinkney Street, living history presentations immerse visitors in the language and thoughts of long-ago citizens. Historic Annapolis also hosts a variety of public events, from historical interpreters presenting on colonial life to summer camps for burgeoning history buffs.
