Wingwood House

Bar Harbor, Maine

Completed in 1928, for Edward Townsend Stotesbury (1849-1938) and his second wife, Eva Roberts (1865-1946), who only seven years before had just finished building the legendary Whitemarsh Hall near Philadelphia. Mrs Stotesbury continued to stay here until her death in 1946, when it was sold to another Bar Harbor resorter, Carolyn Trippe. She quickly fell on hard times and the 80-room mansion was abandoned by the time it was purchased by the Canadian National Railroad in 1952. The following year, they pulled it down and the Marine Atlantic Terminal now sits in its place.
