*The Brown House* Just a short drive from Gulf Hagas, Katahdin Iron Works, Schoodic Lake and Maine’s most scenic wonders. This 2.5 story wood frame home was built in 1815 by Francis Brown (for whom the town in named) and immaculately remodeled in respect to its history. Meticulous attention to detail throughout with operating fireplaces, wood peg construction & locally sourced slate countertops. Additional 2 story workshop leading to attached 3 story barn – both in excellent condition with new foundation in 2002. Stunning slate shingle roofing on all structures. Perfect for B&B startup, outdoor enthusiasts or those seeking the rural Maine lifestyle without the hassle of constant structural repairs. *Another unique feature is found in the wall above the great fireplace between kitchen and dining room. A cabinet once slid out to reveal a secret hiding place the purportedly gave refuge to runaway slaves in the days of the Underground Railroad* This is truly a must see property.
