What's Included

The First Lady of Maryland, Emma Nicodemus Warfield, invited the famous author and orator, Mark Twain, to visit our state capital in 1907. He had not made a public appearance in 11 years and expected it might be his last. Exceeding the capacity of the Governor's Mansion, the event was moved to the State House in which Mr. Twain addressed the adoring crowd from the House of Delegates chamber. You are encouraged to dress in period attire. Costume rentals are available by advance appointment from the Annapolis Opera: 410-267-0087. Following Mr. Twain's remarks, there will be a professional photographer available for souvenir photos with our special guest outside at Lawyers' Mall for a small fee to benefit Chesapeake Children's Museum.
