A favorite of ours. ( Audrey Miller (co-owner of Cottage Connection was a docent here during high school). Did you know you can also stay in the servants apartment? Ask us. An opportunity to LIVE IN history, not just visit.
Designed by Boston architect Gershom Flagg and built in 1761 by the Kennebec Proprietors for the newly created Lincoln County, the Pownalborough Court House received such notable visitors as John Adams, Benedict Arnold, Robert Treat Paine, William Cushing, Reverend Jacob Bailey and two future Massachusetts governors: David Sewall and James Sullivan. Numerous trials were held here, including that of Judge North which was featured in the Pulitzer Prize winning book, The Midwife's Tale by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, based on the diary of local resident Martha Ballard (1735-1812).
The Court House also served as a tavern, a place for church services, a dancing school, and as the Dresden Post Office from 1807-1855. In addition to its vital role in the legal history of Lincoln County and Maine, the Court House was a family home. From 1761 - when Captain Samuel Goodwin, an original Kennebec Proprietor and captain of the guard at Fort Shirley, moved his family from the guardhouse into the Court House - until 1954, his descendants used the building as a house.
Take a trip down memory lane and ride on an old Maine steam train using narrow gauge track (smaller than today's). Fun for all ages.
Staying on Westport Island, then this is just a short drive from your cottage. Great food. Reservations strongly suggested.
