The three houses were owned by members of the Skolfield family who were very prominent in Brunswick in the 1800's. The following is from the Pejepscot Museum (housed in the building on the right) website. The house in the center has primarily offices of various businesses.
Master George Skolfield (1780-1866)
The patriarch of the family, George Skolfield was an expert ship builder. His primary yard was located four miles outside of Brunswick on Harpswell Sound. He oversaw the construction of sixty freighting ships in his lifetime, all of which had the reputation of being “safe, slow, and sound”. By the mid nineteenth century, Master George was one of the wealthiest men in Maine. Along with building ships, he wished to build the reputation of his sons. To that end, he purchased land on Park Row, across from the Brunswick Green. This was the area of town where the social elite lived. He built an enclave of Skolfield homes at the geographic center of Brunswick’s high society.
