Maryland’s History And Geography

Skyline of Maryland's Baltimore Inner Harbor.Maryland is one of the original 13 states, and was named for Henrietta Maria, the wife of Charles I. Despite being the 9th smallest state in terms of geographic size, it boasts a number of different terrains and landscapes. Located in the center of the Eastern Shore, the Chesapeake Bay area is low-lying with extensive wetlands; Baltimore is a busy metropolitan city (ranked #30 of the most highly populated US cities), and the western portion of the state contains open land reaching to the Appalachian foothills. The state’s northern border with Pennsylvania is the famous Mason-Dixon line.
