Annapolis is the capital of the state of Maryland. It has a population of approximately 36,000 and is situated on the Chesapeake Bay, 26 miles (42 km) south of Baltimore and about 29 miles (47 km) east of Washington, D.C. The city was briefly the temporary capital of the United States between 1783 and 1784. The state house was built in 1772 and is the oldest in continuous use in the United States. The Treaty of Paris, which ended the conflict between Great Britain and the American colonies, was signed within its walls. Also, General George Washington resigned his commission to the Continental Congress here. It is topped by the largest wooden dome built without nails in the U.S.
