Founded in 1649, this quaint, picturesque town on the Chesapeake Bay, was the temporary capital of the United States from 1783 to 1784, after the signing of the Treaty of Paris. It is also the city where the first newspaper, the “Maryland Gazette,” was published by Jonas Green in 1745 and the place where the Naval Academy and St. Johns College reside.

A door knocker is an item of door furniture that allows people outside a house to alert those inside to their presence. A door knocker has a part fixed to the door, and a part (usually metal) which is attached to the door by a hinge, and may be lifted and used to strike a plate fitted to the door, or the door itself, making a noise. The struck plate, if present, would be supplied and fitted with the knocker. Door knockers are often ornate, but may be no more than a simple fitting with a metal bob, or ring.
