Captain William Henderson House, built in 1847
The house was built for Captain Henderson and his wife, Susan Amelia Jordan, a daughter of Captain Oliver Jordan, a highly successful sea captain and Thomaston merchant. The Henderson House is an outstanding Greek Revival treasure that borders main street in Historic Thomaston, Maine. Specifically mentioned on the National Register of Historic Places, the architectural elements embody the classic details of the style: gable end to the street, two-story pilasters on the corners, broad architrave trim around the evenly spaced windows (including a blank window to achieve symmetry of design), and a wide band of trim below a heavy cornice just below the roof line. The wall imitates flat stonework such as is found in Greek temples. The side entry with entablature is supported by a beautifully proportioned, free-standing fluted ionic column.
