The Maryland Historical Society (MdHS) is the state's oldest continuously operating cultural institution. Founded in 1844, it was first located in the Athenaeum at St. Paul and Saratoga Streets. In 1919 it moved to its current location on W. Monument St. in the Mount Vernon Cultural District.

Over 350 years of Maryland history comes to life through the MdHS's renowned collections and dynamic educational offerings. The permanent collection includes Francis Scott Key's original manuscript of the poem that became the National Anthem as well as one of the most extensive collections of Americana in the country. In addition to diverse permanent exhibitions, temporary exhibitions are open throughout the year in the galleries of the museum and the library.

The MdHS is home to the original manuscript of the Star Spangled Banner. The Star Spangled Banner and other artifacts relating to Marylanders' fight for freedom, is on view in the museum of the MdHS.

In addition to furniture, paintings and many other artifacts relating to the history of Maryland, the MdHS has a stunning collection of silver. A sampling of this collection is on display in the museum of the MdHS.
