Princess Anne is primarily known for its historic homes and buildings. The oldest dwelling in the town, The William Geddes House (or Tunstall Cottage as it is known to many residents), was constructed c.1755. Many examples of fine architecture can be found along the streets. Samples of those not to be missed are: The Somerset County Courthouse, the Metropolitan United Methodist Church, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Manokin Presbyterian Church, the Washington Hotel, and the crown 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 the home of the Somerset County Historical Society and is open for tours. There are small shops to explore and tasty eateries in which to dine. Please stop in and check them out.
