Brick Home built in the Victorian
Period in Philadelphia style.
The Anna Haines House is one of the charms of historic Princess
Anne, not only because it is one of the few brick homes in town, but
also because it marks the northwest corner of Beechwood and East
Washington Streets where several other prominent historic homes as
well as the historic Princess Anne Boxwood Gardens lay.
Anna Haines, originally of Philadelphia commissioned the building of
this house at the turn of the century in the style of her own native
city. With two story bays facing both Washington and Beechwood
Streets, this house is exceptionally unique among the other
Victorians in historic Princess Anne.
This T-plan house was
constructed in the best traditions of the early twentieth century
craftsmanship with Colonial Revival details. No expense was
spared when it came to ornamental detail of the interior.
current owners have lived in the house over 20 years and have
continued to care for the historic integrity of the house as well as
add interesting embellishments. The owners have a complete file on
Anna Haines, copies of deeds and wills as well as correspondence with
her descendants. In addition, the owners have a miniature (shown
in image above) of Anna Haines, which along with historic information
will be conveyed to the new purchasers of the Anna Haines House.
Rooms in the Anna Haines House are large, many with Bay Windows (2
bedrooms, Music Room and Dining Room). Ceilings are 9 feet high,

The Attic is floored and has recently been finished to expand
