United States Naval Academy: Women of Note - Annapolis Discovered

The United States Naval Academy is no stranger to exceptional graduates. In honor of 'The Year of the Woman' and ahead of Women's Equality Day, we highlighted a few notable female graduates of the Academy. In the past 40 years, approximately 5,500 women have graduated from the USNA. We thank them for navigating uncharted waters and for their dedication and service to the United States of America.

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!

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!
