It's so easy to come in for a bit and walk around these hallowed halls. A great deal of history has transpired here...from George Washington resigning his post as commander and chief to the ratification of the Treaty of Paris which ended the Revolutionary War. The dome, at the time it was built, was an architectural marvel as it was... More

It's good to visit but not much to see. It's very small. It's kind of cool when there's a Session going on.

First of all, Annapolis is a beautiful town... and the State House stands in it's historical center. The historic legislature rooms are under restoration. As of now, the old delegates chamber is restored and the result is gorgous. They are working on the senate chamber and an other which I can't recall. So right now, you can see the hall,... More

Have a few minutes to spare- see the State House. It has a few rooms of historic interest on the first floor. They are beautifully redone to keep in with the original designers intent.

We visited the Maryland State House over Christmas break and found it deserted. No tours and one of the historic chambers was closed for renovations. Still, it was worth a visit.

Visited on a Sunday morning. Besides the security staff, my wife and I were the only ones in the State House. Lots of good history from the site of George Washington's resignation as Commander in Chief of The Continental Army in 1783 to the signing of the Treaty of Paris to end the revolutionary war. Nice huge Christmas tree with... More

Prominently standing in the midst of many historic houses is the Maryland State House. Both history and architecture fans will love this Maryland slice of the colonial era. Even George Washington visited. It's free and interesting.

Annapolis was once the capital of the United States, and the capital building was the place where George Washington resigned his commission at the end of the Revolutionary War, an unprecedented action at that time, paving the way for a democratic country, rather than a military dictatorship. Many signers of the Declaration of Independence lived in Annapolis, and one can... More

Take the short free tour to learn some great history facts and hear the story behind the paintings. Tour is very nicely done.

Annapolis is the capital of Maryland and is full of beautiful and very interesting historical buildings. The Maryland State House is the oldest operating Capitol building in the US. It is well worth a tour of the building, grounds and surrounding buildings.
