The city is located about 50 miles west of Washington DC. and 40 miles south of Baltimore, at the outlet of the Severn River on the west side of Chesapeake Bay. Annapolis is the state capital of the United States that is closest to the national capital. The city is located on the Atlantic coastal plain. The terrain is relatively flat with 15 meters as the highest height above the sea. The historic district is characterized by buildings and cobbled streets, and there are more than 60 colonial buildings. The city has rich maritime traditions centered around the U.S. Naval Marine Academy which is adjacent to the city and the port.

The name is a tribute to Anna, Queen of England, Scotland and Ireland 1702-1707 and of Great Britain 1707-1714. Other part of the name comes from Greek: ' police ', 'city state'.

Population

Since 2015, the population has declined slightly. 62.21 per cent of the residents are white. African Americans make up 21.95 percent, other races 11.43 percent, Asians 2.18 percent and descendants of North American Indigenous people 0.16 percent of the population (U.S. Census, 2018).

Economics and culture

Most are employed by the state, county and city councils. The U.S. Naval Academy is the second largest employer. Many also work in education and health care as well as in the hotel and restaurant industries. In the port area, where agricultural and seafood products are shipped, there are a number of shipyards.

Maryland State House built 1772-1797 is the oldest continuous-use capitol building in the United States. The Bannecker-Douglas Museum (opened in 1984) shows the history of African-Americans in Maryland. The U.S. Naval Academy Museum (founded in 1845) is located in Preble Hall and displays artifacts from American naval history, including many ship models. Kunta Kinte - Alex Haley Memorial is in a park in Annapolis City Dock. The Hammond-Harwood House of 1774, one of the finest British colonial homes in the United States, is a museum of old furniture and paintings. There are several theaters in the city's historic district. Near Naval Academy Bridge is a World War II memorial which was erected in 1998 which, among other things, consists of 48 granite columns for each of the 48 states during the war and which surrounds an amphitheater with the names of 6,454 men who gave their lives in the war.

The Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts houses ballet, symphony orchestra and opera, and has a large auditorium and is attended by many students.

The city has a number of annual festivals. Prior to graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen in June, there are a number of concerts, parades and other events. Other events include the Annapolis Film Festival (March). First Sunday Arts Festival (first Sunday of each month from May to November), Chesapeake Bay Blues Festival (May), The Annapolis Irish Festival (June), Annapolis Crab Fest (August), Alex Haley-Kunta Kinte Festival (September) and Das Best October Fest (September). Annapolis is often the endpoint of the annual Transcontinental Bicycle Race Race Across America.

Annapolis has several parks, including Quiet Waters Park and William Paca Garden.

History

The settler community Providence was founded by Puritans in exile from Virginia under the leadership of William Stone, on the north bank of the Severn River in 1649. The settlers later moved to a better protected harbor on the river's south bank. This settlement had several names, including Town of Proctor's, Town at the Severn and Anne Arundel's Towne (short form: Arundel Town). St. Anne's Episcopal Church was founded in 1692. St. John's College was founded in 1696 as King William's School and is the third oldest college in the United States.

The settlement in Annapolis was long a village. It gradually began to grow, gaining city status and being named Annapolis in 1708. During the American War of Independence 1775-1783, Annapolis was the political and administrative capital of Maryland, and an important port and major center for the Atlantic slave trade. The newspaper "Maryland Gazette" was founded in Annapolis in 1745. The city experienced a decline after Baltimore took over as a commercial center with a deeper port in 1780. Annapolis remained a center for oyster packing and boat building. As in Boston, Annapolis had its own 'tea party' when the owner of the vessel 'Peggy Stewart' was forced to burn the load of taxed tea. From November 26, 1783 to June 3, 1784, Annapolis was the capital of the United States since Congress was held there. The Annapolis Convention, a precursor to the U.S. Constitutional Assembly, was held in Annapolis in 1786.

In 1845, the U.S. Naval Academy was built on the site of Fort Severn. Annapolis was not physically affected by the American Civil War, but many wounded were hospitalized in the city. During World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, many naval vessels were built in Annapolis.

In 1984, Annapolis' historic district was included in the National Register of Historic Places. The largest storm surge in the city ever (Hurricane Isabel with an elevation of 2.31 meters) in September 2003 flooded parts of the city center and damaged many houses also on the outskirts of the city.
