Historic Annapolis Museum

Historic Annapolis Museum Small History Museum with exhibits about Annapolis and Maryland. Free Admission. Donations gladly accepted.
Founded in 1952, Historic Annapolis is a non-profit organization dedicated to preservation, education and advocacy.

Historic Annapolis grew out of a grass-roots effort to preserve the city’s outstanding architectural legacy. Since its inception in 1952, our organization has been instrumental in saving nearly 400 historic buildings in the heart of the city. We have also helped to block construction that would have marred the city’s special character and charm. Annapolis is now a revitalization success story in which preservation of the city’s historical identity has contributed to a thriving economy and a high quality of life. For more than half a century, Historic Annapolis has also researched, chronicled, and interpreted the many facets of the Annapolis’s history. We’ve collected documents and artifacts that embody that history. And we’ve made that history accessible and enjoyable through a wide range of educational events, venues, and media.

Mission: Preservation and Education of Historic Annapolis.

Freedom Bound: Runaways of the Chesapeake Exhibit

Freedom Bound: Runaways of the Chesapeake is a story of resistance to servitude and slavery in the Chesapeake region. The exhibit begins in the 1720s, during the colonial period, and ends in the 1860s amidst the nation’s Civil War. You will meet people who were treated as property, and discover how they resisted that condition and asserted some degree of control over their lives and circumstances.

Video, historic artifacts, actual runaway advertisements dating from 1728-1864, hands-on activities, mannequins, and reproduction clothing will all help to tell the story of real people who struggled for freedom.

The exhibit is located on the second and third floors of the Historic Annapolis Museum, 99 Main Street. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Portions of the exhibit will also be on display at the Historic Annapolis Waterfront Warehouse, 4 Pinkney Street and Banneker-Douglass Museum, 84 Franklin Street.
