Representative of an often depicted Annapolis Maryland cityscape I chose to frame today’s photograph of the Charles Carroll House, along with that of the Redemptorist Novitiate House or Rectory at St. Mary’s Parish as well as its church steeple, within the borders of a Spa Creek landscape and hazy Sunday morning skyline.

The Georgian style Charles Carroll House, visible for the most part on the left side of the photograph above, was constructed in stages beginning around 1730 on an expanse of land along what was then Carroll Creek, today Spa Creek, for Charles Carroll of Annapolis.

To the right of the Charles Carroll House is the 1860 Gothic Revival style Redemptorist Novitiate House, also known as St. Mary’s Parish Rectory, seen orientated from the northeast end of the parish grounds along Duke of Gloucester Street to the left in a southwest direction.

Towering over both buildings, as well as being a distinctive navigational aide for vessels approaching the City from the Chesapeake Bay, is the steeple, bell tower and spire if you would, of St. Mary’s Church that was built in 1865 standing 160′ or so high.

Today’s photograph was taken from the Eastport Bridge while as previously alluded to I omitted the Spa Creek waterfront in order to convey the overall expanse of both 18th and 19th century buildings along the hillside.

Have a good afternoon,

Glenn
