From plantation to a private home to nursing home to B&B, the Mitchell House is steeped in history. The Maryland Militia, under the command of Lt. Col. Philip A. Reed, marched on Belle Air (Fairlee) to confront British forces at Caulk's Field. On August 31, 1814, the British were repulsed. Their commander, Sir Peter Parker, was mortally wounded and legend has it Sir Peter was taken to the Mitchell House for possible aid. Upon his ultimate demise there, his body was transported back to his native England, preserved in a barrel of rum. This is designated in the legend recorded in the Maryland Registry of old homesites.
However, it was recently discovered that the British did not go to the Mitchell plantation until three nights after the battle. Mitchell was taken prisoner, his horses were shot and Mitchell remained a prisoner of war until 1817. The Mitchell House has recently been added to the National Star Spangled Banner Trail.
