Crisfield House
30556 Washington Street Princess Anne
MD 21853


The Crisfield House was home to John W Crisfield who was a U.S. Congressman from Maryland. He was a strong supporter of the Union during American Civil War, opposing moves towards Maryland's secession. He was instrumental in building the Eastern Shore Railroad and served as president, connecting it to the fishing town of Somers Cove which was growing rapidly due to the seafood industry there. This town was renamed Crisfield in his honor. He died in Princess Anne in 1897, and is interred in Manokin Presbyterian Cemetery.

Crisfield House is in fact two historic houses surrounded by boxwood gardens and delightful red brick paths, leading to a very peaceful garden. Part of the house dates from as early as 1750 whilst the main part is from 1852. Now with the first floors refurbished, we are delighted to offer this Federal Period Home for your unique tailor-made event, large or small.

Red Brick paths and Boxwood Hedges wind there way through the garden to our lawn, which can accommodate Marquee Tents for the larger Weddings and events, for up to 80 persons. Our formal first floor rooms in the main house provide a lounge location, dancing area and rest rooms. The smaller of the two houses is perfect for meeting space and breakout rooms. The property may also be let out as a whole and is suitable for catalogue shoots and filming.

The same talented team that deliver such great food and service in the Inn, will look after your every need here too.
