The Anchorage is a historic home in Easton, Talbot County, Maryland. It is a five-part house with a large 2 12-story center section and small hyphens and wings. It features a 2-story Greek Revival porch supported by four Doric columns. The main section was built around 1810, with the wings probably added during the 1830s. Also on the property is a log smokehouse and a windmill. The Lloyd family of Wye House bought the property in 1831 and one of Governor Edward Lloyd's daughters and her husband went to live in it.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
