The earliest known example of Gothic Revival architecture in the state of Maine, this hunting lodge was purchased by Gov. William King, who raised produce and cattle for the West Indies trade. During the War of 1812, it was a Marine hospital, later a tavern, and then a dairy farm. It's been a private residence since 1916. Posted to the National Register of Historic Places on May 24, 1976
