Sarah Orne Jewett House

Inspiration: Deephaven

“The rooms all have elaborate cornices, and the lower hall is very fine, with an archway dividing it, and panellings (sic) of sorts, and a great door at each end, through which the lilacs in front and the old pensioner plum-trees in the garden are seen exchanging bows and gestures.”

— Sarah Orne Jewett (“Shore House,” 1873. Later included in Deephaven, 1877)
