Annapolis, Maryland

We visited the waterside capitol building of Annapolis, Maryland.  It is the oldest capitol in continuous legislative use.   Construction began in 1772 and it was not completed until 1779 due to the Revolutionary War.  It was designed by Joseph Horatio Anderson in the Georgian Style that was popular at the time.  It is constructed of brick. Large Corinthian columns support the arches bracing the dome above.   This building also served as the United States capital for almost a year.  The Senate and House of Representatives both met in rooms keeping with the time of construction.  They were both smaller and less ornate than others we have visited.  This capitol was different than any other we have visited.  There were no public tours offered, but several private tour agencies gave tours of the building.  We enjoyed walking on the old brick streets surrounding the capitol.  We are spending a week (which is a long time for us to be in one place) at Duncan Family Campground in Lothian, Maryland and plan to visit Washington DC.
