On the National Register of Historic Places, the home was build over two centuries ago by Benjamin and Thankful Taylor. Sadly, their married life together was short-lived in this home, as Benjamin passed away in 1808, leaving Thankful with two small sons to raise on her own. However, she remained in the home until her death in 1870. She lived here with her prosperous Captain son, Seth, and his wife Lucy. After Lucy passed away, he married Hanah Howes, who accompanied her husband to sea, which was highly uncommon at the time. The present owners have been loving custodians of the home and its property, since 1977. It has been said, "The house was a mess," when they purchased it 40 years ago. However, through the years they have made it a masterpiece. Are you ready to make history here?
