Image Info

In 1778, Captain Seth Spring, a veteran of the Battle of Bunker Hill, built this imposing house, now at 14 Elm Street, on Spring's Island.

The building became a well-known inn, where stages stopped on the Boston-Portland Road. French general Lafayette was a guest here in 1825.

Toward the end of the century, the structure was converted into a tenement. Subsequently it was restored and today serves as the office building for Deering Lumber.
