Governor Wilson House

Governor Wilson House
1910 - 1940
This black and white photograph captures Governor Wilson's Residence in Chelsea. Stanley C. Wilson served as lieutenant governor from 1929 to 1931 and governor from 1931 to 1935. His dwelling sits on a manicured lawn at the center of the image. The dwelling is angled to face slightly off to the right. The one-and-one-half-story, wood-frame, gable-roof dwelling boasts a columned porch and a large dormer. Wooden rocking chairs provide seating along the porch. Vines creep up the porch, and shrubs grow along the foundation. Attached to the right side of the dwelling is a small, one-story wing, also with a columned porch; a large, gable-roof barn, which is topped with a square cupola; and a small, one-story, gable-roof outbuilding. This type of attached architecture was common in Vermont in the 19th century. A second dwelling is located to the left of Wilson's residence. This two-story, gable-roof, wood-frame dwelling also boasts a vine-covered front porch. Shrubs and flowers grow along the foundation. A dirt road passes across the extreme foreground of the image. Wheel tracks traverse the muddy surface of the road. Several pathways and driveways extend off the opposite side of the road and lead to the façades of the dwellings and to the large barn. A leafy, deciduous tree stands in the foreground on the right edge of the image. A flagpole stands on the lawn at the front of Wilson's residence. Utility wires pass across the image. Hills rise beyond the buildings. The hills are partially cleared and partially forested with conifers and deciduous trees. The thick foliage suggests a summer season. This photograph was taken by a photographer for the Eastern Illustrating & Publishing Co. and contributed to the Landscape Change Program by the Penobscot Marine Museum, located in Searsport, ME. Eastern Illustrating was a postcard company located in Belfast, ME that took thousands of photographs throughout New England and upstate New York between 1909 through the 1950s.
