Marion (Old Rochester) is one of the oldest towns in the United States, and the Sippican Historical Society maintains an extensive collection of documentation on its historic buildings. In 1998, the Sippican Historical Society commissioned an architectural survey of Marion’s historic homes and buildings. Over 100 were cataloged and photographed. SHS will feature one building a week so that the residents of Marion can understand more about its unique historical architecture.
This week we feature 28 Cottage Street. The handsome, substantial home at 28 Cottage Street blends characteristics of the Queen Anne, Shingle, and Colonial Revival styles. Enclosed by a broad gambrel roof, the original open center porch exhibits chamfered posts. This home was built for Harvey W. Everest, a real estate agent.
