Did You Know?

Did you know the State of Maine purchased the Blaine House to serve as its executive mansion in December 1919 for $184,548?

Purchased from the family of nationally-renowned politico James G. Blaine, the Blaine House was subsequently remodeled by the architect John Calvin Stevens and has served as the home for nineteen of Maine's First Families.
