The Maryland State House - Northwest Elevation - Black - Framed & Mounted Print

Size Guide
Frame Style

Erected between 1772 and 1779, the Maryland State House is the oldest state capitol still in active use as the seat of government and the only one to have served as the nation's capital, witnessing important events that brought a close to the American Revolutionary War. Recognizing the new capitol's central location and spacious and attractive accommodations, the Continental Congress met in its Senate Chamber from November 26, 1783 to August 13, 1784. It was during that time, on December 23, 1783, that George Washington appeared before Congress to resign his commission as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army. Washington's actions have been exalted as a critical step in the establishment of civil authority over military rule, so much so that a painting of the scene as it enfolded within the Maryland State House hangs in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol.

Impossible to read any detail in each version of the plan, so it is of little use in tracking the changes in plans over time.

White specks

There were several tiny white specks scattered over the black background of the print. I tried to ignore it but even my framer noticed it and called me about it.

Perfect Architectural Touch

This piece is a perfect addition to a space if you enjoy blueprints or architectural photos. It comes on a heavy duty paper and looks great!

Amazing Quality

Absolutely in love with the quality of framing on the print I ordered. It was the last frame i needed to complete a gallery wall and the color/shade of the wood used was absolutely what i needed. Would definitely order prints from here in the future!
