Earll Williams Gott House


Earll Williams Gott House

Samuel Watson Herrick Store & Customs House

Earl Gott's house has had a varied history. It was begun on the Fernald Point Road, west of the Country Club house by Benjamin Gilley. His wife died before it was completed and he sold the house to Frank Higgins. Mr. Higgins never finished it and in 1883 he sold it to S. W. Herrick, who moved it to the junction of the Clark Point and High Roads and used it as a store for thirty-five years or more. After Mr. Herrick's death, his daughter sold the building to Earll Gott who moved it to his lot on the High Road where he occupies it as a home, having entirely remodeled and improved it. - “Traditions and Records of Southwest Harbor and Somesville, Mount Desert Island, Maine” by Mrs. Seth S. Thornton, 1938, p. 161.
