Not many people know that Annapolis was the capital of the USA and named after Queen Anne. The State House is absolutely marvelous and everyone should go through it. Lots to see, lots of history and beautiful architecture. A gem!!

Although you can only see one floor in this state house it’s well worth the visit. Lots of history to do with George Washington
