Annapolis is located on the southern bank of the Severn River, near its mouth on Chesapeake Bay. This was the first peacetime capital of the United States. It is now the capital of the state of Maryland and home to the United States Naval Academy (1845) and St John's College (1784). Other sights of interest include the State House (1772-1780), the oldest US State Capitol in continuous legislative use, the Government House, the Hammond-Harwood House (1774) and and the formal garden of the William Paca House. It was at the State House that the Continental Congress met, General George Washington resigned from the Continental army in 1783, the Treaty of Paris ending the American War of Independence was ratified in 1784 and the Annapolis Convention of 1786 took place.
Originally settled by Puritans from Virginia in 1649 as the town of Providence, it later became the capital of Maryland and was renamed Annapolis in honour of Princess (later Queen) Anne. Annapolis served as the capital of the United States from 1783 to 1784.
