A historical must do! Wonderful restoration of the spot where Washington resigned as General of US forces before becoming first president.

This is a beautiful facility. Our kids recognized everyone in the paintings. The architecture, decor and history is great. Annapolis, as a whole, is a beautiful city. Great walking city too.

Not only does Maryland have the oldest U.S. state capital building in continuous use since colonial days, but it has maintained the building beautifully, offering visitors the opportunity to see not only the rooms currently used by the Maryland State Senate and House of Representatives,...More

Especially this time of year, there is a tree decorated for each county in Maryland. Wonderful to look at the Senate and House Chambers as they were in colonial times.

We were walking around and saw the State House. It was open so we went in. There were displays of Christmas trees. Enjoyed reading all the history about the different chambers. Very fascinating

If you have the time this is worth a look. The historic context of the building is given very well via information boards. Allow 45 minutes for a detailed look.
