“Colonial Annapolis: The Historic District.” Explore the early history of Maryland with Barry Kessler, Morse ’80. Barry will present a guided tour of historic landmarks in downtown Annapolis, including the Georgian mansions of colonial gentry, McDowell Hall on the campus of St. John’s College, and the crowded lanes near the harbor. In the Maryland State House we will visit the newly restored Old Senate Chamber where George Washington resigned his commission as commander of the Continental Army in November 1783. After the tour, attendees are welcome to stay for lunch at a local restaurant, enjoy the waterfront, or stroll the beautiful grounds of the United States Naval Academy.
