The Barnacle, Prouts Neck, 1885

Contributed by Maine Historic Preservation Commission

Designed by Alexander W. Longfellow Jr. (1854-1934), the Barnacle (Cheney-Hyde House) is perched on the high rocks of Prouts Neck.

It was one of the first private cottages built in this summer community of hotels and boarding houses.

Longfellow’s picturesque design included steep sloping roofs, open porches, and a turret that served as a water tower. The building was also known for its Arts & Crafts elements.
