3. Charles Campbell House, 1904 - C Route 1

John W. Strout, Architect and Builder

This two-story hipped roof frame dwelling is sheathed entirely in wood shingles. Its freely adapted Colonial Revival style is evident in the second story overhang, a side porch with paired Tuscan columns, block modillions, and the tracery of the round arched window in one of the gabled dormers. A three-sided bay window is mounted below the overhang on the south elevation whereas the entrance is sheltered by the porch on the west side. A one-~tory kitchen ell extends to the rear, and a shingled barn stands behind.

The existing house stands on the site of a building which had been in existence as early as 1861. It was built to replace the earlier one which burned in 1903. The May 6, 1904, edition of the Narraguagus Times carried the note tha~~n W. strout had drawn the plans for the house which was to be in the '''Colonial Style." Charles Campbell was one of the partners in the manufacturing, ship building, and mercantile firm of G. R. Campbell and Company.
