Since 1784, when Annapolis served as the nation's first peacetime capital under George Washington, this lot has been the location for the historic Maryland Inn, a popular lodging place for statesman, governors and presidents throughout the 18th and 19th centuries. Delegates of the 1783-1784 U.S. Congress stayed at the inn when George Washington resigned in Annapolis as Commander in Chief of the Continental Army and ratified the Treaty of Paris.
One of the oldest buildings in Annapolis, the original Governor Calvert House dates back to 1695 and comprises part of the hotel. A prominent Maryland family, the Calverts lived in the house from 1727 until the American Revolution. Governor Benedict Leonard Calvert once occupied the beautiful home and held office from 1727 to 1731. At the Governor Calvert House, history often repeats itself. The elegant boutique hotel is home to many Maryland state legislators each year when they convene at the Maryland State House across the street.
