Tate House, a sophisticated Georgian home sits on a knoll overlooking the Stroudwater and Fore Rivers, was built in 1755 for senior mast agent George Tate and family. Tate held a prominent position in the colonies, because England's naval supremacy in the eighteenth century depended on a steady supply of mast that came from logging New England's massive white pines. Tate House stands as a physical reminder of the economic importance of Maine's lumber industry before the Revolution. Its unique architecture, elegant period rooms and furnishings, and enchanting herb garden make it a vital place to connect to colonial roots.
