Teackle Mansion
The Teackle Mansion is an outstanding example of neoclassic architecture built between 1802 and 1819. The structure has many unique architectural features and houses a collection of 19th century furnishings. The mansion displays one of the finest examples of symmetry in Maryland. It was the home to Littleton Dennis Teackle, a prominent merchant and statesman. The mansion is located in the town of Princess Anne, near the headwaters of the Manokin River.

Town of Princess Anne
The Town of Princess Anne, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was created by an act of Maryland's General Assembly in 1733. The town was named in honor of King George II's daughter, Anne, and is located in what was generally referred to as the "wading place" of the Manokin River.

The town is distinguished by many Federal and Victorian style houses. Scroll the street of Princess Anne with the self-guided walking tour and enjoy the lovingly tended dooryards and the Historic Boxwood Garden.

University of Maryland Eastern Shore
The University of Maryland Eastern Shore, initiated in 1886 by the Delaware Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church to educate young black men and women, opened as the Delaware Conference Academy, better known as the Princess Anne Academy, with nine students. In 1919 it was renamed the Eastern Branch of the Maryland Agricultural College when it was designated to provide the land-grant curriculum to the black citizens of the state. In 1948 the college became known as Maryland State College, a division of the University of Maryland. In 1970 it became known as it is today, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.

The Frederick Douglass Library, named for the self-educated abolitionist, orator, and author born on the Eastern Shore, and the Ella Fitzgerald Center for Performing Arts are important educational and cultural resources for the area.
