Description

This impressive Georgian mansion is located in a scenic area overlooking the Salmon Falls River. It was designated a national park in 1785 and its landscape reflects the history of southern Maine. The site is the seat of the Wabanaki tribe. It was bought by businessman Jonathan Hamilton in the 18th century for transportation and farmed by the Goodwin family in the nineteenth century, and restored as the summer retreat of Emily Tyson and her stepdaughter Elise at the turn of the twentieth..

Hamilton House today reflects the Tyson family home in the early 20th century. At the time it was one of the typical country estates in the area. The house has two extravagant murals commissioned by women, as well as their collection of antique furniture and handmade decorative art. The exquisite perennial garden has a lovely garden hut where you can stroll or have a picnic overlooking the river.
