Lewis Holmes House

"The cottage now owned by Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Meade of Weston, Mass., was built by Lewis Holmes, who sold it to his brother, William Thomas Holmes. On September 26, 1865, Mr. Holmes sold the place to Enoch Lurvey, Jr., for $470. Two years later Mr. Lurvey was lost at sea and his widow sold the house to David Robbins. William Herrick was the next owner and he sold to Mr. Meade, who remodelled the house." - “Traditions and Records of Southwest Harbor and Somesville, Mount Desert Island, Maine” by Mrs. Seth S. Thornton, 1938, p. 133.
