Maryland, the Declaration of Independence, and Old Village Paint

10 Jun

The Charles Caroll House in Annapolis Maryland is over 300 years old. It was the home of several important figures in American history. Charles Carroll, born in 1660, immigrated to America from Ireland seeking religious freedom for his Catholic faith. He purchased land in the newly named capital of Maryland and established a home there. (Pictured below).  Charles became the first attorney general of Maryland. His grandson, born in the same Annapolis family home, was the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence.

This beautiful home and gardens is open for tours on the weekends.
