Maryland State Capitol, Annapolis Photos

The Maryland State House building (c1772) has the largest wooden dome ever made without nails, only wooden pegs. The architects are Joseph Horatio Anderson & Joseph Clark. In the former Senate Chamber George Washington resigned his commission as commander of the Continental Army on December 23, 1783, Three weeks later the Treaty of Paris ending the Revolutionary War was signed here, & the United States was briefly governed from the building. Thus this site has the distinction of being both a state and national capital. The state legislature has met in the building since 1780, with only one interruption in 1861 caused by the Civil War.
