Synopsis

Annapolis, one of America's outstanding colonial cities, is the capital of Maryland, the home of the U.S. Naval Academy, host to two of the largest boat shows in the country, and a vibrant town for tourist and resident alike. The city also offers a veritable architectural feast to the masses of visitors who meander through the centuries-old streets past impressively preserved buildings representing every periodColonial, Georgian, Federal, Gothic Revival, Victorian, and Modern. These visitors can marvel at stately dwellings like the Hammond-Harwood and Paca Houses with their meticulously manicured formal gardens, or enjoy the more simple shops, row houses, and taverns lining the streets and alleys. This pocket guide puts the city's outstanding buildings in historical perspective and adds colorful facts to enhance enjoyment of them. It is spiced with delightful anecdotes of many early Annapolis inhabitants and enlightened by recent research. The text includes helpful maps and the superb photographs by M. E. Warren.

Elizabeth B. Anderson grew up in the historic town of Alexandria, Virginia, where she came to love the charm and beauty of its older buildings. After moving to Annapolis, Maryland, Ms. Anderson worked as a tour guide with Historic Annapolis, Inc., Three Century Tours, and the Hammond-Harwood House. It was her love of history that laid the foundation for her book, Annapolis: A Walk Through History.
