Experience Wiscasset’s romantic past on a twilight tour of this grand 1807 mansion. Built as the trophy house of shipping magnate Captain William Nickels, the house was purchased in 1899 by successful industrialist, Alvin Sortwell, as a summer home for his family. His wife Gertrude and daughter France lovingly restored the house over the years in the Colonial Revival style. Hear stories of life in the Gilded Age through the early twentieth century, when Wiscasset was a charmed summer getaway filled with relaxation, yachting and entertaining.
