Annapolis Convention
September 11-14, 1786

Just north of this building, facing main street, stood Mannís Tavern where twelve delegates from five states met in 1786 to discuss commercial problems of the new nation. Their call for another convention in Philadelphia to render the government “adequate to the exigencies of the Union” resulted in the creation of

The Constitution of the United States of America.

This building, built as George Mannís residence about 1789, was incorporate into the tavern complex in 1801. Known by the mid-1800s as the city hotel, its guests over the years included George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe. The old tavern became the Colonial Theater in 1903 and was destroyed by fire in 1919.
