Description and history

The Frank Campbell House is located on the south side of Millbridge Road (US Route 1), at the southwest corner with New Street, on the east side of the village of Cherryfield. It is a 1-1/2 story wood frame structure, roughly square in footprint, with a 2-1/2 story tower projecting from the front (north-facing) facade. It is finished in wooden clapboards, and topped by a flared mansard roof. The tower is capped by a similar roof, and its roof and the main roof are pierce by elaborately decorated dormers with windows set in segmented-arch and round-arch openings. A porch, sympathetic in style to the rest of the house, has been built around the base of the tower. Eave lines are decorated with dentil moulding and decorative brackets. A single-story ell extends the main block to the rear, where it is joined to a small carriage barn.

The house, built in 1875, was designed by Cherryfield resident Charles A. Allen, who designed three other high-style houses in Cherryfield, contributing to the town's rich architectural heritage.
