Abijah Buck House, Buckfield

Built in 1791 by the founder of Buckfield, this house is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in rural Maine. The house retains many of its original Georgian features, including its woodwork, hardware, and a 9-foot fireplace in the kitchen. The current owner removed later alterations. Substantial work needs to be done to make this house a livable single family home once more. Maine Preservation is currently marketing the house to identify a preservation-minded buyer willing to restore this rare Maine asset.
