Historic Estate - Waterfront Farm for sale on Maryland's Lower Eastern Shore

Historic Town of Princess Anne


Teackle Mansion - Home of the Somerset County Historical Society

Princess Anne was founded in 1733 as a place for the county seat of Somerset County - the southernmost county in Maryland.  The town was named for the 24 year old daughter of King George II. The town was situated at the headwaters of the Manokin River, a major tributary running to the Chesapeake Bay (today the River is not navigable in Princess Anne). 

In the mid 18th century, Princess Anne gained considerable importance as a market center because of the river trade and the southward extension of the railroad on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. At that time, the Manokin River was navigable as far as the bridge at Princess Anne. 

Much of the town’s architectural heritage from those days has been preserved. About 150 acres of the old town, containing about 300 structures, is entered on the National Register of Historic Places.

Somerset County Court House, Princess Anne, MD

The Town of Princess Anne exemplifies "Small Town America."  With a population just under 2400 people, the town is one of the most historically in-tact towns on the Eastern Shore. 

Ranked  # 3 Small Town in the State of Maryland by ePodunk Historic Small Towns (after Frostburg and Easton), Princess Anne abounds with history, culture and American Heritage in its purest form.

The area overflows with attractions and amenities, yet still keeps a quiet rural charm and a home-town feel.  

There are two Universities (including the University of Maryland Eastern Shore located in Princess Anne), a Community College, a Professional Baseball Team (the Delmarva Shore Birds), 3 State Parks, several shopping malls, and over 20 museums that uncover and interpret the culture and heritage of the Lower Shore. 

One of the greatest local attractions is, of course - the Atlantic Beaches which include Ocean City, Maryland, Assateague, Chincoteague, Rehoboth, Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island.

Attractions include Golfing, hiking, biking, bird-watching, swimming, fishing, boating, shopping, and site-seeing.  The links below will show just a few of the attractions and amenities the Lower Shore has to offer
