STATE HOUSE SQUARE
This square is named to commemorate the 200th anniversary on Dec 12, 1978, of the Court of Appeals of Maryland, the state's highest court. It encompasses Lawyer's Street, shown on the earliest known map of Annapolis (1718) connecting Publick Circle (now State Circle) with Tabernacle Street (now College Avenue).

The Maryland General Assembly acting under the provisions of the state's first constitution (1776) named the initial judges of the court on Dec 12, 1778 and, with Governor Thomas Johnson, issued commissions on Dec 22, 1778.

The court first convened on Oct 1, 1780 in the Revenue office on Duke of Gloucester Street in the city of Annapolis and continued to hold its sessions there until ca. 1789 when it moved to the State House. In 1903 the court began sitting in its own building on the site of the marker designed by the Baltimore Architectural firm of Baldwin and Pennington. The Courthouse included elegant Tiffany Studio windows depicting the state seal, and a domed Tiffany Studio skylight.In 1972 the court moved approximately one mile northwest of this marker to its present home on Roscoe Rowe Blvd. The courtroom of the 1903 structure with its uniquely carved mahogany paneling and sculptured plaster ceiling has been reconstructed in the new building.

In 1976 the old courthouse was replaced by the Legislative Services Building to the left of this marker, in which the Tiffany windows and dome of the earlier building are incorporated.

This tablet was erected through the courtesy of the Maryland State Bar Association.
