The Seaview Hotel, Friendship, ca. 1910


This is a view of the Seaview Hotel, which was built on the land belonging to the Davis family for whom Davis Point was named. Emery Davis built the house in 1840. The house sits on a hill overlooking Friendship harbor. The rich history of the Davis family during the Civil War is chronicled in "The Amanda Letters" by Courtney McLachian.

Robert Armstrong bought the property in 1899 and added the additions to the left of the house to accommodate families visiting their sons at Camp Durrell. On the roof of the porch is a sign saying "SEAVIEW."
