Contributed by The General Henry Knox Museum


"Montpelier", the home of General Henry Knox, in Thomaston.

The original Montpelier was built in 1794 and was the home of General Knox from 1794-1806. His wife, Lucy Flucker Knox, continued to live there until her death in 1824, when it was inherited by their youngest daughter, Caroline Knox Swan Holmes.

Upon Caroline's death in 1851 the oldest daughter, Lucy Flucker Knox Thatcher claimed the house. After her death in 1854 Montpelier was sold to James S. Creighton. The building was razed in 1871 to make way for the Knox and Lincoln Railroad.
