Optimism, Loss, Reinvention
The story of this house is one of optimism, loss, and reinvention. Built for ship Captain Simon Nowell in 1805, in the Nowell heyday it served as home for his 12 children and a stop for the Boston-Portland stage coach. When the Captain fell upon hard financial times, Captain John Lord became owner, eventually selling in 1836 to Andrew Luques. Luques' wife was the youngest daughter of the Captain--creating a union between the families and the history of the house that led to The Judge.
My family arrived in November of 2020. As we settled into our first Thanksgiving in the house as new owners, I discovered the house had a history and The Judge was the key to understanding it.
