During the War of 1812, St. Michaels gained its name as “the town that fooled the British”. The residents of St. Michaels, having been forewarned that British barges were positioned on the waters to attack with cannon fire, hoisted lanterns into the trees above the city. The first successful “blackout” fooled the British into overshooting the town’s houses and shipyards. Only one house, forever since known and Cannonball House, was struck. The industry was largely concentrated around shipbuilding and seafood packing, and there are several museums and cultural centers that nod to this heritage. However, today St. Michaels enjoys primarily a healthy tourism industry as guests come from far and near to enjoy all the wonderful things this charming town has to offer. Many will also recognize St. Michaels as the backdrop of several popular movies, including “The Wedding Crashers”.
