HENRIETTA BREWER HOUSE (REDCLYFFE SHORE MOTEL). Called by historian Frank Beard, and architectural historian Gregory K. Clancey, the "most authentically Gothic house in eastern Maine", this 2-114 story wooden frame Gothic Revival building has two steeply pitched connected roofs in the main section. The main entrance is off a screen porch at the forward gable end. Above the eaves are twin box dormers, while the broad walls are interrupted by arched square windows crowned with lintels. The roof has been shingled with asphalt but the walls are covered with clapboards. Between 1861 and 1863 this residence was built by Hemietta Brewer, wife of Captain John Nememiah Marks Brewer, and daughter-in-law of General John Brewer. Now known as the Redclyffe Motel, this buildings new owners have restored the interior decoration in its original Greek Revival style. It was placed on the National Register of Historical Places in 1983. FAB, JCB
