The Old Senate Chamber

Mary "Molly" Ridout (1746-1808)

Artist: StudioEIS, 2014
Medium: Resin
MSA SC 6030-2-24
Delegate Chamber

The resin statue of Molly Ridout, by StudioEIS (2014), is located in the gallery where she and other prominent citizens witnessed the resignation ceremony. The gallery was the only place where women could view the proceedings of Congress and the Maryland Senate. Molly authored one of the only written accounts of George Washington's resignation and the only description left by a private citizen.

The model for this statue is a descendant of Molly Ridout, Rachel Ridout of New York, the daughter of Barbara Ridout of Annapolis and the late Orlando Ridout V.
