Vintage Photograph of the "Lincoln House" in Washington County, Maine; presumably the Lincoln House in Dennysville

Photograph, dating to the late 19th or early 20th century, of a house along the water, identified as the "Lincoln House in Wash. County Me".

Presumably "The Lincoln House" built in 1787 in Dennysville, Maine, along the Dennys River, by Revolutionary War General Benjamin Lincoln (1733-1810), a native of Hingham, Massachusetts.
In the map below, the "Hansom House" is a contemporary name for the "Lincoln House".
