Distinguished as a National Historic Landmark, the Maryland State House is a treasure in the city of Annapolis. Join your period-attired guide on a 75-minute tour to explore one of the most historic and architecturally significant state houses in the nation. From the laying of its cornerstone in 1772 to the present-day meeting place of Maryland’s General Assembly, the building and grounds tell the story of four centuries of state and national history. The Maryland State House is especially notable for being the oldest continuously used legislative building in the country, the place where George Washington resigned his commission as Commander-in-Chief after the American Revolution, and the place where the Treaty of Paris was ratified. You will also hear about significant Marylanders like Thurgood Marshall, Frederick Douglass, and Harriet Tubman.
