5 Historical Spots in Maryland to Visit This Fall

Eva Niessner

Bored with the same old, same old? Want to see something new and learn about something you never knew? Now’s a great time to learn more about Maryland! Whether you’re a history buff or a newbie to the state who wants to learn all about its long and colorful past, you can’t go wrong with visiting a few of these fascinating places:


1 Edgar Allan Poe House

He’s not just the reason we root for the Ravens -- he’s also one of the most important writers in American history! Poe spent the end of his life living in Baltimore, and his home is now a museum that’s open for tours. You can take home a souvenir after you finish learning about Poe’s tragic life and untimely death, and you might even get inspired to write a poem or two. 


2 Antietam Battlefield

Step onto the site of the Civil War’s bloodiest battle when you visit Antietam Battlefield! This battlefield outside Sharpsburg is both solemn and gorgeous (and is reportedly pretty haunted, too). Whether you’re there to pay your respects or to search for spirits, you’ll have lots to see when you visit.  


3 USS Constellation

No, it’s not a prop from Pirates of the Caribbean! This ship, which you’ve probably seen docked at the Baltimore Harbor, has a long and colorful history. She’s been all over the world, but now permanently calls Baltimore home. You can take a tour of this gorgeous ship yourself and even spend the night as you learn about life on the high seas! 


4 Harriet Tubman Museum & Education Center

You probably know that Harriet Tubman was an American hero who helped slaves escape to freedom, but did you know she was born on the eastern shore of Maryland? Learn all about her amazing life and her unyielding bravery at this spot in Cambridge, not far from where Tubman grew up. The newest feature is the gorgeous mural of Tubman reaching out to visitors who approach the building. 


5 Maryland State House

Did you know the US capital used to be in Annapolis? Okay, it was only for one year, but still -- it was at the Maryland State House, which has been in operation before the Declaration of Independence was even signed. It’s the oldest capitol building that’s still operational, too. Stop by and take a tour, or admire the gorgeous, stately architecture.
