|| 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 brought 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. From plantation to private home to nursing home to B&B,
the Mitchell House is steeped in history.
