MARYLAND

The story of the Battle of Fort McHenry, the salty atmosphere of an Eastern shore wharf, the growth of tourism and commerce in the "Free State" today and many more colorful elements are present in this pavilion. The building itself combines contemporary architecture with the brick walks and the round-cornered brick walls traditional in the state. On the upper level are a restaurant and lounge.

* Admission: free.

 Highlights 
INSPIRATION FOR AN ANTHEM. In the theater, an 11-minute motion picture recounts the Battle of Fort McHenry, fought outside Baltimore during the War of 1812. It was during this battle that Francis Scott Key wrote the words to The Star-spangled Banner. (A replica of the huge 15-star flag Key saw is shown in the United States pavilion across the road.)
WALK ON THE WHARF. On a long, wooden fisherman's wharf are stands selling crab cakes, steamed clams and other Maryland favorites, as well as souvenirs.
MARYLAND'S MANY FACES. Exhibits within the pavilion depict the state's past and present.
The historical heritage is seen in models of ships that brought the first settlers in 1634 as well as in original documents and paintings.
Ties to the sea are shown in views of Chesapeake Bay and the bustling Port of Baltimore.
A trip in pictures covers points of interest through the entire state.
RESTAURANT. A large restaurant features Maryland specialties - seafood, chicken and ham dishes - many selected by Mrs. J. Millard Tawes, wife of Maryland's Governor and author of a cookbook.
