The beautiful Maryland State House is the oldest state capital in continuous legislative use and 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. During that time, George Washington came before Congress to resign his commission as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army and the Treaty of Paris was ratified, marking the official end of the Revolutionary War. Next, the Government House is the official residence of the Governor and is located at State Circle in Annapolis. It has been the home of the governor since 1870.
