BLAZO-LEAVITT HOMESTEAD (1812 & 1817) TOUR

$5

with Peter Cyr, Sacopee Valley Adult & Community Education

Calendar May 5, 2024 at 1 am, runs for 1 week

William Blazo built the Blazo-Leavitt Homestead in North Parsonsfield. The ell, with one large chimney, was built in 1812. The main section of the house, with four more chimneys, was added in 1817. It is a two-story Portsmouth Federal-style home with elaborate doorways, ornate interior woodwork, a Palladian window over the front door, and a large central hall. It was in the same family until 1974. Then, from 1977 until 2008, the homestead went through four different owners. From 2008 until late 2013, the structure was vacant. The present owner has worked hard to restore the homestead. The Rufus-Porter type murals and graining by artist Sandy Howe are outstanding. The Blazo-Leavitt Homestead was featured in the October 2019 issue of Early American Life, a copy of which is at the Brown Memorial Library. The homestead is located on Route 160 South in North Parsonsfield, diagonally across the street from the Parsonsfield Seminary.  Please note: There is no charge for this tour. The $5 registration fee will be donated to the Parsonsfield-Porter Historical Society. If you would like to contribute other funds to the historical society, you may do so at  the time of the tour. Pre-registration is required due to spacing and safety issues. Extra sessions will be available as needed.
