Annapolis in Anne Arundel County, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
The Old Treasury Building
The Oldest Public Building in Annapolis
The building has been used for many purposes over the centuries and has undergone multiple architectural changes. In 1947-51 a major renovation restored it to its 18th century appearance. It is now undergoing architectural and archaeological investigations, but it will eventually reopen as a public exhibition space relating to the history of the building and 17th century Maryland. The new exhibits will also explore the relocation of Maryland's capital from St. Mary's City to Annapolis in 1694.
