  • Lobby I

    The  Henson  is a hotel and conference center located on the campus of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, in the historic town of Princess Anne, Maryland. In addition to being home of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, the town also has many buildings and landmarks of historic interest. The Eastern Shore of Maryland, where Princess Anne is located, offers a number of other historical landmarks, buildings, and tourist attractions 

    The relatively short time (only two to three hours away) from Princess Anne to the cultural centers of Washington D.C., Baltimore and Annapolis, Maryland, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Wilmington, Delaware, makes The Henson  at UMES an ideal location for small business conferences, administrative retreats, family outings, wedding receptions, weekend excursions for families, or couples and more.  Just give the Center a call at (410) 651- 8100 to make reservations or to arrange a consultation on the services available through The Henson
