Oliver H. Fernald House - Valour House

Mary Elizabeth Dreier House

“Rev. Oliver Fernald built the other house on the point and in 1926 his daughter sold it to Miss Mary E. Dreier of New York, who made many changes and additions to fit it for a summer home and she named it Valour House in memory of the courage of that little band of men who attempted to make their settlement under Father Biard on this site in 1613 and planned to establish a mission for the conversion of the Indians.” - “Traditions and Records of Southwest Harbor and Somesville, Mount Desert Island, Maine” by Mrs. Seth S. Thornton, p. 138 - 1938.
