The “Governor's Mansion” in Waldoboro, formerly the home of two Maine Governors and one U.S. Senator, is the unique setting for a special evening exhibition of Anne Heywood's original paintings. Heywood's landscapes and still lifes will grace the walls of this historic building, in the early stages of renovation, on Saturday, Oct. 11 from 4-7 p.m.
Built circa 1830 as a wedding gift to a wealthy shipbuilder's daughter, the Governor's Mansion was home to some of Maine's most important citizens: Harriet Haskell, an early alumna of Mt. Holyoke Seminary, and renowned in the field of education, lived there in the mid-1800s; Sebastian S. Marble (1887-1952), governor of Maine; and the Honorable Frederick G. Payne, governor of Maine 1948-1952, and U.S. Senator (1953-1959), who lived there from until his death in 1978.
