History and Heritage
Did you know that Annapolis was the capital of the fledgling United States from 1783 to 1784? Well, this city played a great role in America’s founding. Visit the Maryland State House, the oldest state house in continuous legislative use.
Other National Historic Landmarks include the Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse, Brice House, Chase-Lloyd House, Hammond-Harwood House, Maryland Statehouse, and the Paca House and Garden.
See the Banneker-Douglass Museum, Maryland’s official museum of African American heritage. Take a tour of the Annapolis Maritime Museum, which highlights the Chesapeake Bay region’s rich maritime heritage and ecology.
Located in Annapolis and founded in 1845, the Naval Academy educates and trains the future officers of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. A day tour of the campus will provide a fascinating glimpse into the everyday lives of midshipmen. Make sure also to stop by the Naval Academy Museum, which features exhibits illustrating Naval Academy and U.S. Navy history.
