Image Info

"James B. Shapleigh built this house about 1827-28 and operated a tavern here for several years. In 1849 it became the home of the Tebbetts family and remained their home until 1919. Their bakery business was next door.

Both buildings were sold in 1919 to William Batchelder who constructed the Sanford Garage on the site. The garage, much remodeled, [was] the Village Shoppes mini mall in 2006. [For many years] the Sanford branch of Key Bank occupied the approximate site of the Shapleigh Tavern." -- "Backward Glance" by Harland Eastman
