Annapolis Charter 300 1708-2008

Sally Wern Comport's two dimensional artwork "Shaping a City" on the Newman Park fence celebrates the foundation of our city: the working class, its farmers, its watermen, factory workers, carpenters, other highly skilled tradesmen, and suppliers of goods and services who helped build Annapolis and the Naval Academy and fostered the city's vital role in our country's development. City planners and the developers provided incentives or all of the working classes to own property, ultimately providing homes and emancipation to many African American citizens. Take a short walk across the street to the seasonal farmers market or over to bridge to Eastport, a neighborhood rich in maritime history. Visit the boatyards, the Maritime Museum, the Barge House and a vibrant community still retaining its own special identity.
