Mall's Background

Westfield Annapolis is a shopping mall, owned by the Westfield Corporation, located near the junction of U.S._Route_50 and Interstate 97 in Parole, near Annapolis, Maryland. Its anchor stores are Macy’s, Lord and Taylor, Nordstrom, JCPenney, and Sears, and it features an 11-screen movie theater. The mall is known informally as "Annapolis Mall".

The site was at one time the location of the Annapolis terminus of the Washington, Baltimore and Annapolis Electric Railway, and was known as the "Best Gate" station, which had three single-ended and four double-ended sidings, where rail cars could be shunted on or off of the single-track WB&A east-west railway which ran to the north-south Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and Pennsylvania Railroad lines.[4] This "Best Gate" station gave the name to the nearby Bestgate Road, which today runs along the northern perimeter of the mall.
