As a sailor, I spent years navigating the waters of the Severn River and Chesapeake Bay - often using the Maryland State House as a point of reference. Then one year, we elected to take a tour and realized what we'd been missing. As the only State House that once served as the Capitol of the United States, it's well... More

The place is situated prominently in the middle of the city and worth walking around to see or read about it but there in no place to park just a short period to take photos. It is quite a distance to walk from the harbor parking area.

As a part of my see-all-the-captiols plan, I got a chance to visit the Maryland State House in December, 2014. It's a beautiful, historic building in a historic and quaint setting. I had hoped for a brief guided tour, but none was available. And unfortunately, most of the rooms were closed off. Bad timing on my part, I suppose. The... More

This place is packed with history!! This is where early America was governed. If your any kind of history buff, you need to go here.

Apparently this is the oldest statehouse in the country that is still in use. It is open to the public, has some interesting historical rooms to visit and some interesting facts. It is small and only takes a few minutes to tour, but it is right in downtown Annapolis so it is definitely worth a stop if you are walking... More

we visited on the weekend so it was really quiet. they do regular government business during the day, during the week. there is security screening, so pack light if you're planning a day in Annapolis. the area surrounding the State House is not that spread out, so you can spend the day just wandering around looking at other historic sites,...

The State House is a wonderful old building with so much American history. It sits on its own quiet circle. We wandered around but did not take any tour. Lovely just to sit on the grounds.

The oldest State House in the US, built in 1772-1779. It's cool to see and be in such a historic building. Nothing much was happening when we were there but it was nice to go in and look around
