Historic Homes of New England

One of the majestic homes in the Historic Homes list:  Hamilton House of South Berwick Maine.
In 1914, Hamilton House was still known as the Tyson House.  Sarah Orne Jewett, another So. Berwick resident, was a close friend of Emily Tyson. Today, the name has reverted to the original owner/builder of the home:  Jonathan Hamilton, a shipping merchant.  The wings have been removed, and minor renovations have taken place, but it is much the same, gracing a scenic view of the Salmon Falls River.

(This postcard's message includes the names:  "Mixer" of Providence, RI, and "Hughes" (address unknown.)
