The Maryland State House: America's First Capitol

Examine the beautiful Maryland State House is the oldest state capitol still in continuous legislative use and is the only state house ever to have served as the nation's capital. The Continental Congress met in the Old Senate Chamber from November 26, 1783 to August 13, 1784. During that time, George Washington came before Congress to resign his commission as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army and the Treaty of Paris was ratified, marking the end of the Revolutionary War. Of Georgian construction, the capitol is topped with the largest wooden dome in the nation constructed without nails. Lunch to follow at The Bluestone. Instructor:
