Skinner house may have a ghost. 
When the current owners moved into the Skinner house  some 14 years ago, a two year old grandchild asked who the "lady was in the dining room."  Later, neighbors told the owners that former owner, Patty Skinner Johnson died in the dining room after a long illness.

Southern Charm in a Waterside Town

Located in the historic district of Cambridge - the third largest town on Maryland's Eastern Shore, this magnificent Queen Anne Victorian towers over Oakley Street and the scenic Choptank River.

Built some time between 1900 and 1910 by the Skinner family of Dorchester County, this home with its slate roof, clapboard siding, 360 wrap around porch, magnificent gardens and three story round tower has been an anchor on Oakley street for nearly 100 years.

No expense was spared when building this house - and in the last 100 years it has been in the possession of only two families, both of whom kept it in immaculate condition.  All plumbing and electric has been updated, outside clapboard and slate roof are in good condition and gardens have been kept up beautifully.

Ideal for a large family, Summer Retreat or Bed and Breakfast, the Skinner house (and the Skinner ghost) wait patiently for a new family to take ownership.
