with Linda Griffin


he John Calvin Cottage was initially built for the local mill owner’s family. The quaint structure is picturesquely situated on a 1.8-acre island in the Ossipee River, just above a waterfall. Mature landscaping complements the simplicity of the architecture, certainly a John Calvin Stevens design. Cathedral ceilings and lovely stained glass windows, along with period doors and woodwork, all capture the essence of the time. An antique cook stove in the kitchen and a period fireplace in the living room further add to the cottage’s charm. Definitely a historic jewel! Please note: There is no charge for this tour. The $5 registration fee will be donated to the Porter-Parsonsfield Historical Society. If you would like to contribute other funds to the historical society, you may also do so at  the time of the tour. Parking is available at the cottage or the Parsonsfield Post Office. Pre-registration is required due to spacing and safety issues.
