The State house has early Revolutionary period history. After an initial security check, tourist have some photographic liberty making for outstanding photos. An outstanding historical landmark.

An excellent stop in Annapolis to understand some of Maryland's early history, including the era of the American Revolution. A brief glimpse of today's Maryland legislative process is also included, and the building itself is part of America's architectural history

It is SO beautiful and quite startling for many people to realize that George Washington resigned his commission in the Army here so he could become President. It’s one of my favorite places to take visitors!

Beautiful piece of history; amazing architecture. Take a guided tour! Even better, sit in when state politicians are in session. Bring a camera!
