Happy 1 year anniversary to 1845 Coffee located on the #USNA Yard! Learn more about it on our blog here: https://annapolisdiscovered.com/taste-of-navy-history-at-new-coffee-shop-on-the-yard/ #AnnapolisDiscovered #VisitAnnapolis

Happy 1st birthday to our very own piece of history!

Steeped in the abundant history of the Naval Academy and located just inside Gate 3 sits an unassuming gem...1845 Coffee.

1845 Coffee resides in one of two original buildings still on the Yard. Built in 1876, the 19th century structure has turned from a security guardhouse to a unique specialty coffee shop. Offering rich blends of Ceremony Coffee, flavorful teas, and freshly baked goods from the Naval Academy Club, 1845 Coffee regularly serves Midshipmen, faculty, staff, visitors, and more. The welcoming team and warm atmosphere provide a much needed modern coffee oasis.

As we plan to reopen soon, 1845 Coffee welcomes you into our historic building.

You’ll know we’re open again when you see our birthday balloons outside. What’s a birthday without balloons and a treat? We look forward to seeing and serving you soon!

Fun Fact Friday

Bay Bridge Ferry (1951). This ferry is headed to Matapeake Eastern shore side

Prior to the construction of the Bay Bridge, ferries would shuttle people across the Chesapeake Bay to the Eastern Shore. The trip across took roughly an hour and a half.

The final crossing of the Bay took place on June 30th, 1952, which was also the same day that the Bay Bridge opened to traffic.

Fun fact!

Throwback Thursday Historian Annapolis Fact brought to you by Federal House Bar & Grille! "Anchors Aweigh", the classic United States Naval Academy Band song was composed by Charles A. Zimmermann, Naval Academy Bandmaster & Music Director, with lyrics by Midshipman Alfred H. Miles. The song was dedicated to Alfred's graduating class in 1907 and can still be heard around the Academy and sporting events like Navy Football games.

Preciosa ciudad, la he visitado en varias oportunidades y hemos disfrutado mucho sus restaurantes de mariscos.
Let's save Historic Annapolis and move the state capital to west Baltimore. Then maybe the legislature will pay attention to what the city needs!
