The 1774 Inn Description:
The McCobb-Hill Minott House was built in 1774 by Isaac Packard in Phippsburg for James McCobb, who prospered during his lifetime in both lumber and commerce. Mark L. Hill, first U.S. Congressman from Maine, lived in the house from 1782-1842. It was purchased in 1854 by Charles V. Minott, who became one of Maine's best-known shipbuilders. "This house is an outstanding example of a pre-revolutionary mansion, exceptionally well-detailed and finely proportioned." (Historic American Building Survey - 1962)
Reflecting its Colonial era origins, this home sports heavy window shutters with peep-holes and strong bars, defenses against Indian prowlers. Paneled wainscoting, ceiling mouldings, fluted columns and wide pine floors recall an artisan-age long past.
