This is the oldest house in Eastport. For nearly 100 years it belonged to the Williams family.

Jonas and Louisa Williams and their eight children moved here in 1876. They used the first floor as a grocery store, selling homemade sauerkraut to neighbors. After she was widowed, Louisa offered her front parlor as a school and a polling place. The hosue stayed in the family until 1972.

For all of its years, the Williams House has been a landmark. Today, it is a bed and breakfast inn and still retains much of its original charm and architectural character.

Text with map: The Williams House is shown in green on this 1908 Sanborn Map. Note the pink rowhouses of Murphy's Row on Port Lane nearby.
