The Washington Inn and Tavern has been the center of the community ever since, over 270 years of hospitality, serving travelers and the community and the second oldest Inn in the State.
The Town of Princess Anne exemplifies Historic Small Town America. This hamlet at the head of the Manokin River was named for Princess Anne of Great Britain, daughter of King George II. Established in 1733 and serves as the county seat for Somerset County, the southernmost county in Maryland. The Inn was built in 1744 and has been the center of the community ever since. It is believed that George Washington stayed at the Inn several times during his wide travels across the state, his family and that of his wife came from Virginia. The Inn was named in his honor. Room 2 is likely to be where he stayed as it is the largest of the original historic rooms and the only one to have its own balcony over the front porch. The ladies and gentleman’s separate staircases are a very rare feature and it is said for the protection of the lady’s modesty ascending the stairs. Reputed to be a busy staircase, even when there are no guests staying . . . .
