Abstract

An article on the Blaine House in Augusta, which was recently the subject of a restoration costing $650,000, most of which was raised privately. For a governor's mansion, the Blaine House is a remarkably comfortable and cozy place. It was originally built as a private home for sea captain James Hall and in 1862 became the home of James G. Blaine, who was appointed secretary of state by two presidents but was never a governor. With details on the history of the house, its residents, and stories connected to it.
