Among the former residents are Alfred Skolfield a successful sea captain, Dr. Alice A.S. Whittier, Maine's first female pediatrician, and Dr. Frank Whittier, one of America's first forensic pathologists. Closed and unheated for sixty years, the house remains exactly as it was in 1925 when it was last occupied on a full time basis. It has collections complete to the receipts used in the house's construction and 1920's spices in the kitchen spice racks. Its seventeen rooms are viewed during personalized guided tours that provide an unparalleled glimpse into nineteenth-century upper-middle-class life in Maine.
