HOMES DOWN EAST, by Earle Shettleworth, Christopher Glass and Scott Hanson, with fascinating history, gorgeous contemporary photography, and architectural insights on every page, is a book not to be missed by anyone who loves Maine, architecture, or the still-unsurpassed homes and cottages of a century ago.

Between the Civil War and World War I, the Maine coast drew thousands of summer visitors every year. By the 1880s, some of the more affluent visitors decided to build their own cottages. From 1885 to 1905, Scientific American Building Monthly published floor plans, photographs, and descriptions of hundreds of homes —including many in the Shingle Style—to inspire architects, builders, and clients. Fifty of those featured homes were in Maine, and the authors have tracked them down to share them with a contemporary audience.

About the Authors/Illustrator:

A native of Portland, Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., cofounded Greater Portland Landmarks in 1964. In 1971 he was appointed by Governor Curtis to serve on the first board of the Maine Historic Preservation Commission, and he has served as director of the commission since 1976 and as Maine State Historian since 2004. Earle has lectured and written extensively on Maine history and architecture.

Christopher Glass is an architect practicing in Camden, Maine, since 1974. He taught architectural design at Bowdoin College for twenty years and has lectured widely. He is a former chair of the Maine Historic Preservation Commission, former president of Maine Preservation, and author of two previous books on the architecture of Maine homes.

Scott T. Hanson, an architectural historian with Sutherland Conservation & Consulting in Augusta, has researched and written numerous National Register nominations and Maine Historic Building Record documentation projects. Scott is the author of one previous book and co-author with Earle G. Shettleworth, Jr., of The Architecture of Cushing’s Island (2012).

Architectural photographer and Maine native Dave Clough is a life-long lover of photography with a special passion for photographing structures of historical significance. His work has been published in Japan and the U.S. Dave lives in the coastal community of Rockland.
