Annapolis - Charles Carroll House of Annapolis

107 Duke of Gloucester Street
410-269-1737

Celebrating three generations and an urban cultural landscape that spans over 300 years, the Carroll House is a restoration-in-progress. This national historic landmark bears great historical significance to the state of Maryland and America as the home of Charles Carroll the Settler, first Attorney General of Maryland who settled here in 1706, his son, Charles Carroll of Annapolis, and his grandson, Charles Carroll of Carrollton (1737-1832).

Faced with both persecution and restrictions for his faith, Charles Carroll of Carrollton secured his family's vision of personal, political and religious freedoms for all citizens when he became the only Catholic to sign the Declaration of Independence in 1776.

Maryland is now the only state in America in which the homes of all of its signers of the Declaration of Independence still exist and all are located in Annapolis. The Carroll House is one of only fifteen surviving signers' birthplaces in the United States.
