HERBERT KILBY HOUSE (KILBY HOUSE INN). At 122 Water Street, the comer of Adams Street, opposite the Mowe House, is Kilby House Inn, a bed-and-breakfast. Herbert Kilby, a prominent Eastport merchant, with his wife Harriet Pikes family, operated the Pike and Kilby Store in Eastport. On the site of the last residence destroyed in the 1886 fire, Kilby built this simplified Queen Anne Style Victorian house in 1887-1888. Herberts daughter, Miss Lucy Kilby, who taught science at Shead High School for many years, inherited and lived here for even more years. A two-story, clapboarded residence, it has a pediment over the entryway (with pillars on each side), eight two-over-two first floor windows, bargeboarding beneath the roof, and there is one chimney. Since 1992 the present owners have restored this house.

“Wedding Anniversary.

On the occasion of their 4th anniversay, Tuesday evening, Oct. 15th, Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Kilby received a number of thmir friends in their new house, corner of Water and Adams streets.
It was a sort of “house-warming,” and the glow from the opef fire as the guests entered, gave a very cheerful appearance to the new house, which is a perfect model of its kind, being a Queen Anne cot-[typo or rest of word “cottage” left out] with all the modern improvements. It has been furnished with a great deal of taste and care, and the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Kilby hmartily congratulated them, wishing them “many years of happiness, and all the rooms full of blessings.”
