“Worth the visit”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

The grounds around the capitol are very nice with a few historic artifacts and monuments. The inside is nice as well. Unfortunately, most of the interior was inaccessible as the dome was being repaired.

“Stately indeed”
Reviewed 20 October 2013

As well as being a photographer's delight, this venerable building is worth taking the time to tour, offering interesting architecture as well as a snapshot of history. The grounds are also worth checking out.

“Oldest Continuous State House”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Capital of the US for nine months. Interior of the dome was being repair, so we could not appreciate it from the inside. Viewed the senate and delegates chambers. Self -guided. Suggest that they provide brochures outlining the history of the building.

“Worth the visit”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

This historic building is full of history. So much history was made moulded within these walls, by so many prominent American patriots. At one time, it was even the US Capitol.

“Maryland State House”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

The oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use, dating to 1772. It houses the Maryland General Assembly and offices of the Governor and Lieutenant Governor. The capitol has the distinction of being topped by the largest wooden dome in the United States constructed without nails. From November 26, 1783 to August 13, 1784, Annapolis was the capital of the United States.
