Archaeologists have uncovered the stone and brick foundation of a
structure that served as Maryland's first state house.
The Calvert House site was identified in the 1980s. On Thursday, the Historic St. Mary's City museum announced its excavations uncovered the structure's foundation and cellars.
The museum says it's the first time in 30 years that new portions of the Calvert House foundations have been exposed in excavations.
Calvert House was built soon after the settlement of Maryland was established. It was the home for the settlement's founder and first governor, Leonard Calvert. It later served as an inn and a courthouse.
