Worth visiting but under restoration
Jan 25, 2014 by: Ben0844 from Mirabel, Qc
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.
Very Historic - Very Quiet

Visited on a Sunday morning. Besides the security staff, my wife and I were the only ones in the State House. Lots of good history from the site of George Washington's resignation as Commander in Chief of The Continental Army in 1783 to the signing of the Treaty of Paris to end the revolutionary war. Nice huge Christmas tree with Maryland kids' handmade ornaments on it. Nice building with some good historic recreations. Worth stopping in for history and architecture buffs.
Nice slice of colonial history

Prominently standing in the midst of many historic houses is the Maryland State House. Both history and architecture fans will love this Maryland slice of the colonial era. Even George Washington visited. It's free and interesting.
