Explore the soul of Maine in some three dozen of its most original, authentic, and evocative houses

For several years, acclaimed photographer Maura McEvoy and art director Basha Burwell traveled the length and breadth of Maine in search of houses that capture the state’s singular character. These are not designer houses; they are homes created by the people who live in them, from artists to writers to fishermen, distinctive for their ingenuity, originality, and fierce individuality. Many are unchanged, inhabited by generations of the same family; some are ingenious conversions. As Kathleen Hackett observes in her eloquent text, these are homes that have a kind of visual wealth that money can’t buy, homes that define the very spirit of Maine.

"The Maine House crafts a plea to preserve a living history belonging to individual, family, and state; a visual call to recognize these homey structures and others like them as ‘extraordinary gifts.’. . . Maura, Basha, and Kathleen have gone into these old homes and salvaged something we’d do well to hold on to: the understanding that when the last cottage is crumbled and family farmhouse is flattened, so goes the unrenewable character and charm that is uniquely Maine."

"The Maine House [is] a visual journey through delightfully ramshackle saltwater farms and fish shacks, to stately stone houses and cozy coastal cottages."
— The New York Post

"A new book celebrates the knotty-pine, windows-thrown-open-to-the-breeze beauty of archetypal Maine houses. . . . The Maine House [shows] us the dignity, and aching beauty, in preserving Maine’s quirky architectural past."
