I’ve known about this house in Maine for a while, but was unaware of an awesome feature until reading about the renovation this estate went through in the 1990’s: There is a tree growing through the barn roof! And yes, this feature was retained while the building was extensively restored. It is an american elm, one of the few remaining in the area. Just thought I’d share this.
This photo was taken circa 1915, and is a popular, hand-colored postcard. The house itself was built in 1756. Not sure when the tree became part of the architecture!
