Experience a New England classic
In 1796 Daniel Marrett, a recent Harvard graduate, moved to Standish, Maine, to become the town minister. He bought the most imposing house in town to reflect his status as the community’s leading citizen. Three generations of Marretts remained there for nearly 150 years. Marrett House is a classic example of the “big house, little house, back house, barn” configuration, with the house and all service buildings connected.
