Old_Harrison_HouseBeginning only ten years after the end of the Civil War – in 1875, long before the availability of air conditioning – Captain Levin F. Harrison, grandfather of today’s owner of Harrison House, Buddy Harrison, Sr., began taking boarders from Baltimore into his Tilghman Island home who were trying to avoid the heat of brick and stone that pervaded the city during the summer. He would sail these boarders – often, family and friends – directly from Baltimore to Tilghman Island, docking on the same waterfront where the Harrison House pier stands today.

Over time, word of the hospitality at Harrison House grew, and in time, “Summering PropertyatNight225in Tilghman” grew to include many families who regularly came to the island to not only escape the urban heat, but also to enjoy the comforts and activities of Eastern Shore life. Five generations of the Harrison family have operated Harrison House, treating everyone from those early boarders through today’s modern guests as if they are family. Today, over 130 years later, guest still come to the Harrison House Country Inn, visiting year-round to enjoy all that this unique and original corner of the Eastern Shore has to offer.
