Homes Down East


Homes Down East

Maine Preservation has acquired copies of Homes Down East signed by ALL THREE authors Earle Shettleworth, Christopher Glass and Scott Hanson, PLUS the photographer David Clough.


Between the Civil War and World War I, the Maine coast drew thousands of summer visitors every year. By the 1880s, some of the more affluent visitors built their own cottages. From 1885 to 1905, Scientific American Building Monthly published floor plans, photographs, and descriptions of hundreds of homes. These inspired architects, builders, and clients. Fifty of those featured homes were in Maine, and the authors have tracked them down to share them with a contemporary audience.
With fascinating history, gorgeous contemporary photography, and architectural insights on every page, this is a book not to be missed by anyone who loves Maine, architecture, or the still-unsurpassed homes of a century ago.”
