Princess Anne

Teackle Mansion

Princess Anne is located in the Eastern Shore region of Maryland. It is a small historic town in Somerset County, Maryland, only fifteen minutes away from Salisbury.

Understand

Founded in 1733, and shortly thereafter becoming the seat of Somerset County, the main reason for a tourist to visit is simply to enjoy the pretty, historic architecture in this pleasant small town. Just east of the historic center is the other main reason why people visit: the University of Maryland's Eastern Shore campus.

Get in

U.S. Routes 13, 50, and 301 are the main roads into the Eastern Shore.

Get around

Because it is a small town, the best means of travel is by car.

See

Princess Anne doesn't have a lot of stand out attractions per se, but a nice walk around the historic buildings is a good use of your time. Look for the Somerset County Courthouse, the Metropolitan United Methodist Church, St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Manokin Presbyterian Church, the Washington Hotel, and especially the Teackle Mansion.
