Maryland State House
A private open house for conference registrants will be held at the beautiful and oldest state capitol still in continuous legislative use. It is the only state house ever to have served as the nation’s capitol. The Continental Congress met in the Old Senate Chamber from November 26, 1783, to August 13, 1784. After over seven years of research, construction, meetings, and conservation, the Old Senate Chamber has been carefully restored to how it would have architecturally appeared in 1783-1784, when Congress held session in Annapolis, ratified the Treaty of Paris, and received George Washington’s resignation as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, thereby affirming civilian control of the American military.
