Princess Anne in Somerset County Maryland has some of the most unusual haunted sites – and while it’s a beautiful town decked with gorgeous historic homes, it is also home to our scariest ghost walk.
NOTE: Due to harsh content, this walk is not open to children. There are strong themes (lynchings) and gruesome details in some of the stories. Must be at least 12 to attend and all guests under 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Teackle Mansion was built by Littleton Dennis Teackle in the early 1800s. It took him nearly 20 years to finish and he nearly lost it twice. His beloved wife, Elizabeth designed the gardens and ran the house. She loved the place … and she is still there. The mansion was modeled after a Scottish Manor House, and there is nothing quite like it open to the public on the Eastern Shore.
The Grey Eagle, a stone structure built to function as the jail and police department is also rare …. and has some rare ghosts. St. Andrews Graveyard is laid out in the old English style with beautiful headstones, and the Washington Hotel was built as a tavern – and George Washington really did sleep there.
PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT GO INSIDE THE PROPERTIES. This is a ghost walk where stories of hauntings and unexplained events are shared while standing outside the property.
Join the Princess Anne Ghost Walk and stand in the presence of Elizabeth Upshur Teackle’s beloved home… learn how much she loved it. Hear the stories of Dr. Ruby, Judge Standford, Judge Mac Duer and prisoners held inside the Grey Eagle.
Somerset County has more historic properties per capita than any other county in Maryland, and you will feel like you’re stepping back in time when you walk the streets of Princess Anne.
SITES ON THE PRINCESS ANNE GHOST WALK include the old Princess Anne jail, the Teackle Mansion, the Washington Hotel, the Princess Anne Firehouse, Independence Hall, the Francis Barnes House, the Somerset County Courthouse and several historic homes along the main streets. Hear tales of the dead on a walk through St. Andrew’s graveyard and lay your hands on a “healing tree.”
