A visual symbol of Annapolis

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 a unique design made of wood and fastened together with wooden pegs. Then and now it stands as an important landmark that highlights the skyline of Annapolis. Be sure to walk outside and enjoy the beautifully manicured grounds, and don't miss the Governor's Mansion which is nearby. Besides the waterfront, this is my favorite area in the historic district.

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.
Worth visiting but under restoration

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, the delegates chamber and the actual senate and house of représentatives. It is very nice and signs provide you with useful historical information. You can see the resignation letter of General George Washington when he resigned from the Continental army after the war. It is here because it was here that happened because the continental congress was meeting in Annapolis at the time. I recommend you make a stop here at the State House. I rate 4 because of the works under way but it will surely be a 5/5 when finish.
A quick but worthwhile visit

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.
