Princess Anne 

Antique hitching post photo 

 

Located at the head of the Manokin River the town was named for the 24 year old Princess Anne, daughter of Queen Anne and King George of England.

Princess Anne is primarily known for its historic homes and buildings; many examples of fine architecture can be found along the streets including the crowned jewel, the Teackle Mansion. Constructed from 1802 – 1819 by Littleton Dennis Teackle, one of the area’s most influential men of his time, the mansion is home of the Somerset County Historical Society and is open for tours.

Visitors to Princess Anne have the unique opportunity to experience the rich heritage of this historic community using their cell phones. A free cell phone tour highlights over 300 years of Princess Anne history from the Colonial era, Revolutionary, Civil and World Wars, the heyday of steamboat travel, the arrival of the railroad and the first “talking” picture show.

Princess Anne is also a designated Main Street Maryland community.
