History

Providence was the earliest capital of Maryland when it was inhabited by Puritans. Later on, it was named Anne Arundel’s Towne after Lord Baltimore’s wife.  It was not until Sir Francis Nicholson, a royal governor, transferred the capital from St. Mary’s City that the tiny seaport got its current name. The royal governor opted to pay tribute to the throne’s heir, Princess Anne. As a queen in 1708, she took on her regal namesake as a city. The royal badge that she owned, having a crown above the intertwined thistle of Tudor and Scotland rose of England, is shown on the town’s flag.

Sir Francis create      d a metropolis that is entitled to the queen. He built a baroque plan that is comparable to Europe’s splendid capitals rather than utilizing a traditional grid. Circles were drawn with radiating streets in order to form hubs and give meaning to specific structures. St. Anne’s is present in one circle, and this Episcopal Church is considered as the city’s spiritual center. Regarded as a Church of England, it was initially sustained by the taxpayers.
