Queen Anne's County Courthouse
USA

The Queen Anne’s County Courthouse boasts a long heritage as the oldest Maryland courthouse in continuous use. Completed in 1792, the white brick courthouse had a center section two rooms deep, flanked by matching wings one room deep. The building was renovated in 1876 and the wings were doubled in depth and a rear addition was added. Upstairs, today’s circuit court cases are heard beneath a coffered tin ceiling that is supported by cast iron columns from the Victorian Era renovations. During the cold war a bomb shelter was built in the basement. The courthouse is a fully functional working environment with current documents sitting beside dusty old volumes recording the indentures of servants. The courthouse green is the town’s centerpiece and the green itself is graced with a sculpture of the county’s namesake – Good Queen Anne. Her Royal Highness Princess Anne of England attended the statue’s 1977 dedication. This is the only known sculpture of Queen Anne outside of England. Also on the courthouse green is the county’s war memorial wall that lists the names of each Queen Anne’s County citizen who died fighting for the country.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
