The multi-phase restoration of the Littleton Long house in Princess Anne was an intensive project that saved this important Federal/ Greek Revival dwelling from potential demolition, and now it is a showcase of architectural restoration.
The property was purchased by the Trust in 1995 and moved in 1997 from its original location on Somerset Avenue one block onto Church Street. Extensive restoration was done, and in 2004 was sold to a private owner who continued with interior & exterior restoration, including addition of a third back section and historic landscaping including a formal parterre, extensive herb, perennial and vegetable gardens and a woodland border.
The house is of Federal/Greek Revival design from 1830, and one of the many gable-end style homes to be found in Princess Anne inspired by the Teackle Mansion. It features a transverse hall - fashionable on the Lower Eastern Shore - double parlors, restored faux-painted tiger maple and mahogany wood-grained doors and stairs, historic wallpapers, and reconstructed period hearth kitchen.
