Architectural Styles

  • Greek Revival
EWT, 2010
47) The Norwood House 15 Key Street, Greek Revival with its peripheral Doric columns adding to the Greek Temple effect. J.K. Norwood, a local merchant, had this house built about 1824 and his family was still living there in 1855. During the Fenian Rebellion of 1866, Civil War Major General George Meade, Commander of the Union Army at Gettysburg, was sent to Eastport along with troops to patrol the border between Maine and New Brunswick. The next family which owned the house were the Whelpleys. General Meade stayed at the Whelpley house and used the front rooms facing Key Street for his quarters. While at Eastport, Meade caught pneumonia and nearly died. The general had the habit of chewing tobacco and apparently his aim was not good for he spit tobacco juice all over the Whelpley home. Mrs. Whelpley did not like Meade and his nasty habit of chewing tobacco did not endear him to her. Many years later, Mrs. Whelpley was still upset with General Meade and told everyone just what she thought of him and his disregard for her house.
