Especially this time of year, there is a tree decorated for each county in Maryland. Wonderful to look at the Senate and House Chambers as they were in colonial times.

We were walking around and saw the State House. It was open so we went in. There were displays of Christmas trees. Enjoyed reading all the history about the different chambers. Very fascinating

If you have the time this is worth a look. The historic context of the building is given very well via information boards. Allow 45 minutes for a detailed look.
