These twelve identical homes were built for workers at the Goodall mills and nicknamed "The Twelve Apostles."

The photo was taken at the intersection of Cottage Street (Route 202) and Brook Street facing Number One Pond.

A few basic house plans were used over and over on the East side of Sanford, but identical houses were not always side by side. More often they were scattered so that one might see a house on one street, its duplicate on the next and still another duplicate around the corner.
