8 Maine Street, Kennebunkport
Located in the heart of the village where its Doric colonnade has been a landmark since 1853, this gem of Greek revival architecture takes one back to that time in Kennebunkport's history when shipbuilding thrived and the shipping trade made the town one of the wealthiest in New England.
A guided tour of the Nott House gives an intimate glimpse of life as it was in those bustling and opulent Victorian times.
The home is a veritable time capsule, unique in that all the carpets, furnishings, wallpaper, and artifacts are original to the house. They accurately reflect the varying and evolving tastes of four generations of the Perkins and Nott families spanning the late 1700's through to the mid-1900's.
