Trip Advisor George Washington was here!
Apr 24, 2015 by: Rich K from Spokane, Washington
Did you know that Annapolis was the capital of America before it became the United States officially? GW danced with over 60 ladies here in one night. What a gentlemen. The restoration in the state house is a site to behold.



Trip Advisor Very Impressive and Worth the Trip!

We toured the Maryland State House and saw a copy of the original (under glass) letter of resignation from General George Washington, which is on display in the State House! The building itself is extremely impressive, and the history abounds! You are walking where George Washington walked! Doesn't get better than that!



Trip Advisor Worth a visit but nothing truly special

This is one of the oldest state houses if not THE oldest. We stayed in an inn right across the street from the state house, so we just popped in for a quick visit. There wasn't that much to see, and the dome is not as ornate as most. Still it was worth a visit.



Trip Advisor Beautiful historic landmark!

The State House is beautiful and full of history. A man dressed in full revolutionary regalia greeted us and gave us the "eye witness" account of George Washington resigning his commission after the war. The only sour note for me was the giant statue of Chief Justice Taney in front of the building. It seems in poor taste to have a monument to the man who authored the Dred Scott decision. Surely there are other notable figures from Maryland to memorialize instead.



Trip Advisor For the history lover

I didn't know that this place at one time was the Capital of the United States. It is an impressive building with a tremendous history. The grounds are beautiful and you get the feeling of the history behind it at every turn. I would recommend this to anyone in the area.
