Colonial Village was written by John Eldridge Frost in 1947 to document the history of homes and other structures built in the village of Kittery Point, Maine prior to 1800. Equally important are the engaging stories of the people, famous and not-so-famous, who inhabited the houses.
Early settlers along the Piscataqua River in Kittery Point, Maine who built and lived in these Colonial houses have family names including: Bray, Pepperrell, Sparhawk, Cutts, Deering, Follett, Gerrish, Pierce, Dennett, Shapleigh, and Whipple.
This 3rd printing of Colonial Village updates those histories. The information was compiled in 2021 to document what has happened to the structures over the 74 years since Colonial Village was first published. Illustrated with 28 photographs, most taken around 1947 by Douglas Armsden, an accoumplished Kittery Point photographer.
