The Blazo-Leavitt Homestead was built by William Blazo 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. From 1977 until 2008, the homestead went through four different owners. From 2008 until late 2013, the structure was vacant. The present owner has been in the process of restoring the homestead since November 2013. It is now finished! The Rufus-Porter type murals and graining by artist Sandy Howe are outstanding. The Blazo-Leavitt Homestead, 515 North Street, North Parsonsfield, is located on Route 160 South in North Parsonsfield, diagonally across the street from the Parsonsfield Seminary.

Discover Your Passion with Right Brain Power
with Larissa Davis, Sacopee Valley Adult & Community Education
There comes a point in our lives when we seek deeper meaning. The trouble is, we were trained to approach life, even our big goals and dreams, from a logical, left-brain perspective. But as we say here in Maine, you can’t get there from here. To discover the deeper truths of who we are, what we want, and why we are here, we have to start from the right-brain: the seat our imagination, intuition, inner knowing, and creative expression. But in our left-brain lives, the right brain is often ignored, unfamiliar, and under-utilized. So, how do we build right-brain power? Join artist and Creative Fit Coach Larissa Davis as she shares powerful, anyone-can-do-this exercises to strengthen your right-brain so you CAN get there from here! Materials fee of $10 payable to instructor at class. Please preregister as we need a minimum of 4 people to run the course and a maximum capacity of 10. Ages 18+
