Museum of Historic Annapolis

As a result of a grassroots movement to conserve the architectural heritage of Maryland’s capital city, Historic Annapolis was born. As a result of our efforts since 1952, hundreds of historic structures have been saved or preserved in the center of the City. We were able to prevent new buildings on an unprecedented scale from detracting from the City’s unique historical character. An economic boom and great quality of life have been achieved in Annapolis thanks to preserving the City’s distinctive historic character. Historic Annapolis has also documented and interpreted Annapolis’s rich history for more than six decades. We’ve amassed a trove of relics and antiques that serve as tangible reminders of the past. Several educational and public activities are in place to make this heritage accessible and pleasant. Historic Annapolis has played a significant part in several important preservation efforts and educational activities, and this chronology highlights just a few of them. Website
