Star-Spangled Banner National Historic Trail
— War of 1812 —As the British savagely burned the buildings in Havre de Grace during their morning attack May 3, 1813, the townspeople ran west for protection to a home that stood near this location. The home, known as Bloomsbury, was owned by Baltimore businessman Mark Pringle. His warehouses of flour, which lay close to the water's edge, were lost; however, the British spared the home.
(Inscription next to the image of the Pringle Mansion) Pringle Mansion known as Bloomsbury, was located on land that is now part of the railroad right-of-way. Illustration by Benson J. Lossing, Field Book of the War of 1812, 1868.
