It was worth the stop while in the area. The grounds are beautiful as is the building itself. It's a self-guided tour which enables you to wander around the ground floor of the building looking in the various rooms. If the house is in session you can still tour but you will be on the second floor and able to... More

This is a beautiful state house with lots of history. You can take a self-guided tour. There is security to go through when you enter, but no big deal. We got there at 4:40 (with a 5:00 closing), but still had enough time to see everything.

I really enjoyed visiting the Maryland state house in learning about all the national and state history that has occurred within this building. There are nice and trooper to the exhibits about the buildings importance and you get to visit the room where George Washington resigned as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army.

Due to narrow one-way streets and a complete lack of parking it was difficult to get to. It is an interesting building.

This beautiful and historic structure is worth a visit. It dominates the center of town and is well worth a walk around to see it from all aspects.

The Maryland State House may not be the largest or most grand of state houses but it is rich in history and tradition! The most impressive item in its walls has to be General Washington's hand written resignation letter the the President of Congress! The Senate and House rooms are grand and make you feel a part of the political... More
