Moses Greenleaf was very active in making Maine a separate state from Massachusetts. He was a surveyor and cartographer, and was the first to map the state showing accurately its many lakes and rivers. This house is near where I live, and has been faithfully restored. It dates from around 1800, a mere child by European standards, but quite old for the US. It is very typical of the style of farm houses in the area, but better preserved.
