History

With a population just under 2400 people, this hamlet at the head of the Manokin River was named for Princess Anne of Great Britain, daughter of King George II. It was established in 1733 and serves as the county seat for Somerset County (the southernmost county in Marylandmarker).

In the mid-18th century, Princess Anne gained considerable importance as a market center because of the river trade.
