While Something of the Village still Lingers

The year was 1698 when Annapolis established its first market house. Five different market houses served the locals at four different locations from 1698 to 1775. It found a permanent home at the head of City Dock in 1784. That year eight men deeded Market Space to the city under one condition: the land had to be used for a market house. What was once a sleepy fishing village has evolved into a thriving city bustling with an ever-growing number of residents and visitors who appreciate and enjoy the cultural, economic, and political fabric of historic Annapolis’ Market House.
