An absolutely beautiful home with an excellent history/story. So said to see that it doesn't appear anyone is giving this home any care now! It is still a beautiful home with a great story...can someone step up and care for it?

Bus tour took us on a drive through the neighborhoods in the area and this one is worth looking at and learning the history behind the house.

It is worth stopping by to see the uniqueness of this structure. It is failing into great disrepair which is unfortunate.

Remembered this from visit to area some 15 years ago and the history behind it. Lovely unusual old dame of a house but sadly needs a lot of money spent to repair and repaint it. See from one of other reviewers they met the owner who is 90 so it must be getting beyond him to keep it up. Hopefully someone will rescue this gem before the rot is too great.

The Wedding Cake House is called the "most photographed house" in the state of Maine. It is an historic house located at 104 Summer Street. The home was built in 1825 by shipbuilder, George W. Bourne. The history behind the house is very interesting.
