RURAL ARCHITECTURE : MAINE
FARMHOUSE & BARN
The rural architecture of Maine is unique, with a variety of building types and settings. Lamoine, Maine, consists of a group of
small village areas located to the north of Mount Desert Island with a history of farming and maritime activities. Following are
the documentations of two buildings on adjoining properties in the Lamoine Beach area of the town.
Example 1: This Nineteenth Century vacant farmhouse with additions was built by Edwin DesIsles He once owned most of the
property in the area, which was settled by family members. Much of the front section of the building is in stable condition but
the additions to the back are in collapse.
Example 2: This is an historic heavy-timber framed barn. The main body of the structure is in stable condition. The attached
lean-to addition has collapsed. Evidence shows the nearby location of a farmhouse which no longer exists.
