This is the rear view of the home Captain Samuel Hadlock Jr. built in 1827 when he returned from Europe with his second wife and their infant daughter.

The man in the middle is the second owner, William Pitt Preble (1811-1905), who expanded the house and added to the property. The woman on the left may be Preble's second wife (Hadlock's daughter), Jane Matilda Hadlock Sanford Preble (1826-1898). The woman on the right is unidentified.
