EWT, 2010:
72) The McLarren House 11 Washington Street, 1830. John H. McLarren was perhaps Eastport's most respected ship's master of the 1800s. He commanded everything from sloops to full-rigged ships to steamers on the Boston run. He also had shares in numerous vessels and was a prominent ship owner.

• From Eastport Sentinel, January 6, 1897, p.1,c.6-7: “Washington Street Baptist Church, and other Eastport Churches. — ... Mr. Stephenson afterwards built the two houses for the Wheeler brothers, Loring F. and James P., now the houses of Mrs. McLarren and Mr. W.J. Fisher. He also built the church at Dennysville in which we felt a family interest, as in those delightful vacation visits of my boyhood, I went on Sunday to meeting in the old school house.
