A little history: “Henry Hill Boody (class of 1842), professor and later politician and entrepreneur, built this elaborate residence in the Gothic Revival style, which was novel at the time in Brunswick, Maine. From his early days as a student, Boody had surpassed his peers at the College in ability and ambition, and he may have wanted a home that similarly distinguished him. The house was designed by New York architect Gervase Wheeler, who had come to Brunswick to work on fellow English-emigrant Richard Upjohn’s College Chapel. Its steeply pitched gables, decorative bargeboard and board-and-batten construction add color, texture and variety to the exterior.” Read more here.
