In 1889, Goerge Walter Hinckley, founder of Good Will-Hinckley, purchased the Isaac Chase farm, including the Greek Revival farmhouse which became Good Will Cottage, a home for 15 boys. The cottage's first house matron was Jane Hinckley, who was the founder's sister. Good Will Cottage was rebuilt largely through gifts from the family of Maine philanthropist Harold Alfond, and rededicated September 23, 2000 as the Dorothy "Bibby: Alfond Visitors Center; it also houses the Senator Margaret Chase Smith Gallery.Show Details
