Situated on Maine Street at the head of Spring Street, this imposing Greek Revival house was built in 1853 with sturdy Doric columns and remains a Victorian-era dream. Known locally as “White Columns” or “the Nott house,” for its longtime owners, the house remained untouched by the Nott family through the years and was donated to the local historical society with the stipulation that it remain forever unchanged. The period furniture, wallpapers, and rugs will amaze you if you’re into that era. In-house tours run about 40 minutes, or from July through Columbus Day, you can take walking tours departing from here—they’re some of the best on the Maine coast.
