The Farmhouse

 During our cleanup/ move in phase we found a stack of old pamphlets about David's Folly, written by Minvera Cutler. "The house, four square and white, in good Maine tradition, was built in 1819 by David Wasson, a ship builder who retired to become a farmer." We also learned of how David's Folly got it's name. "In those days, people scoffed at the idea of farming so near to the sea and called the new venture David's Folly." Minvera bought the property in 1920 and ran it as a bed and breakfast / earthworm farm until well into the 80's. Anyways, here are some pics of the house and property. It took us a while to get the house looking like this but I think it's quite nice now. The front of the house looks different now thanks to my Mom, Greg and our friend Mark. We moved the wood pile into the barn and my mom and I planted flower beds.  I'll take some new pictures of the exterior and post them tomorrow.  Hope you enjoy!!
