McGLASHAN-NICKERSON HOUSE (RED BEACH) Built about 1883 for George McGlashan, an immigrant from Scotland, this two-story wooden frame Italianate style residence was sold in 1887 by his widow to Samuel H. Nickerson, a Calais judge. The carriage barn is connected to the house by an ell. The foundation is red granite, since McGlashan was a stockholder in the Maine Red Granite Company (incorporated in 1876 in Red Beach, Calais.) Of three hip roofs, one covers a three-bay center door entrance, with southern exposure, transom and sidelights. A bay window faces west, while a dormer punctuates that roof, and a bulls eye on the second story is over the front door. A railed porch, leading to the ell (or central block), is supported by posts, while the second floor has six four-over-four windows. The barn, with 1883 horse stalls, has a sliding door, and a roof ventilator is connected to the ell. The second floor has three bedrooms, and the interior has many Italianate decorations. KFM, JCB
