Anne Arundel County is part of the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. The capitol of Maryland, Annapolis, is also located in the county.
This county is known as the “Land of Pleasant Living”. It was named for the daughter of a prominent family from Cornwall England, and the wife of Cecil Calvert, to whom King Charles I had granted the colony.

During this war, in 1655, the Battle of the Severn was fought in Anne Arundel County between the Puritan forces supporting the Commonwealth of England, and forces loyal to Cecil Calvert – the Commonwealth forces won.
