Worth seeing if you are interested in history. They have both the currently used chambers as well as a renovation of the old chambers. I learned some facts about both the Revolutionary War and the Civil War that I never knew.

The Maryland State House while historically significant, is still in use today. There is no admission fee. The grounds, building, and trees make for a lovely area.

This was not on our radar but so glad we did not miss it. The State House is truly a piece of art, wherein history speaks to you. So thankful it remains open and available to the public.

The Maryland State House is beautiful and pleasant to visit. Was excited to see where George Washington resigned his commission. Very well maintained.
