The Burnell Tavern - A Brief History

This home was built as a family home by Cyress Burnell in the late 1700s. He raised his family here, and over the years, Cyress and his progeny served the public in various ways.

The Burnell Tavern served as a stagecoach stop - the original barn with intact horse and oxen stalls is part of this property.

One of Cyress' sons served as the station master when the railway came through, and the stagecoach and railway met at this juncture. The abandoned railroad tracks mark the area where the rolling pastures of the current acreage meet the timber acres through which runs a dirt roadway leading to the Saco River.

In one of the front parlors are the cabinets that remain from the days when this property served as the town Post Office.

In the mid 1800's the town General Store was moved to the property - on the right side of the main driveway. In this building remain the original plaster walls and a wood stove, creating a cozy retreat for an office, studio or it's most recent use, a small antique shop.

The property has been professionally restored by experienced artists/craftspersons, Paul and Sharon Thomas. In the lovely front hall is a mural which depicts the tavern and its surroundings as well as introducing the history of other local homes Paul and Sharon have restored.

This home has not been RENOVATED; it's been brought back...truly RESTORED. It "feels" like a product of it's time with the new cabinetry made to match the old, vintage doors with antique thumb latches, period paint treatments and stenciling, restored fireplaces - even a rehabilitated wood cook stove in the kitchen.
