Uprooted Polish prince moves to Ellicott City

April 01, 2005

Poland's Prince Alexander Hohenlohe, uprooted from his home by the Nazi invasion of his country, settled into temporary quarters outside Ellicott City in 1941.

The prince and his American-born wife moved into the Burleigh Manor after extensive renovations to the Georgian Colonial mansion, west of Ellicott City off Centenial Road.

According to media accounts at the time, the couple planned to raise hogs and horses.

The house was built in 1785 and now serves as a community building for the neighborhood.
