A blog to document and share the restoration of a beautiful, old sea captains house in Monmouth, Maine. My husband and I bought this house, our dream house in August of 2011. The house is filled with history and needs to be brought back to life. We look forward to sharing not only the restoration process, but the history of this incredible home!
We have been lucky enough to be in touch with a local historian in Monmouth named Bobbie. She has been wonderful enough to share a few pictures of the Clough family at the house which was taken around 1910. The house is in the background and there are a few barns as well that no longer exist today. The other picture is of Benjamin Clough, the Grandson of who is believed to have built the house who is also of the same name, Benjamin Clough. What an amazing thing to be able to see the faces of the original family who built and called this house their home. Thanks to Bobbie for her generous help!
