Harrington is a historic home located at Princess Anne, Somerset County, Maryland, United States. It is a two-story, mid-18th century, frame farm house approximately 30 by 30 feet (9.1 by 9.1 m). It is one of the very few existing two-story frame 18th century farm houses of the area. The land on which the house was built was patented to a Thomas Holbrook, relative of the builder, in 1682 and remained in the Holbrook family for over 120 years.[2]

Harrington was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]
