  2. I was so taken with the 'quiet dignity', as aptly put in a previous comment, that I just had to research this beautiful place. Well, there's dignity now, yes, but there used to be a real live wire who wrote graffiti which was uncovered during restoration and dating to the original building. The graffiti is believed to refer to the original preacher. So what did our friend from long ago think of his preacher? "McLain is a lying fool"!

  3. Our son and daughter-in-law came down to choosing between Harrington House and Pemaquid Light for their wedding. Both were very attractive and the staffs were eager to help.
