Anne Arundel County is an extremely important county in Maryland. It is home to Annapolis, the state capital. Plus, it is close to both Baltimore and Washington DC. Because of its prime location and governmental importance, there are a lot of large companies that call Anne Arundel County home. These institutions include Fort George G. Meade and the National Security Agency, Northrop Grumman, Southwest Airlines, and the U.S. Naval Academy.

 In addition to its many modern amenities, Anne Arundel County offers a rich history, including its name. Founders named the county for Lady Anne Arundell (1615-1649). She was a member of the ancient family from Cornwall, England. Lady Anne Arundell was the wife of Cecilius Calvert the first lord proprietor of the Province of Maryland. The year after her death, Anne Arundel County received its official name.

Clearly, Anne Arundel County has a lot to offer. From economic opportunities to shopping and important cultural institutions, there is something for everyone.
