Learn on Location: Early American History of Annapolis

Learn On Location Tour: WEDNESDAY, 13 MAY 2015

Capital of Maryland since 1694 and the nation’s capital from 1783-1784, Annapolis is among the top tier of American cities in which to explore 18th century history and architecture. In this discovery and learning environment, we will visit the Maryland State House, the oldest state capitol in continuous legislative use. Here, Washington resigned as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army. Here, the Treaty of Paris was ratified by the Continental Congress, ending the American Revolution.

Enroute, colonial historian Roger Swartz will lecture on 18th century Annapolis and provide background on the sites and sights we will be visiting and viewing. We will walk the historic streets of the city, first laid out in 1695, to the William Paca House and Gardens and step into the home of a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Paca’s 37-room redbrick, Georgian-style home has been called the most impressive of the restored 18th century mansions in Annapolis. Following lunch in the historical district, and before heading home, we enjoy a narrated water cruise of historic Annapolis and the banks of the U.S. Naval Academy.
