This Westbrook Farmhouse Is Older Than The United States Of America
There's an old farmhouse that is for sale in Westbrook, Maine that is actually older than the United States of America. Built in 1761, the sprawling farmhouse has stood the test of time with some exceptional TLC from some of its previous owners.
The farmhouse itself includes 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. To maximize the old charm, there are 3 fireplaces throughout the home and two of the bathrooms are fitted with clawfoot tubs. There's even a secret compartment in one of the farmhouse doors, where money was once secretly stored.
And then there's the history. There's a small outbuilding on the property that once served as a schoolhouse for local families. There's also a large barn attached to the farmhouse that likely once housed equipment for...you guessed it, farming.
Even more surprising for a piece of history in Maine is the very reasonable price tag. The sellers of the property are asking for $339,000.
