Our Saturday December 9th outing was a rare and perhaps final opportunity to photograph both the outside and the inside of La Rochelle, better known as the Maine Sea Coast Mission. La Rochelle is a beautiful and elaborate “cottage” on West Street in Bar Harbor. Built in 1902 for George S. Bowdoin, a great-grandson of Alexander Hamilton and a partner in the Morgan Bank, the mansion was named after the Bowdoin family’s ancestral town in France. George Soules lead this outing and gave a tour of the house, including the 3rd floor which formerly served as the quarters for 21 servants.

For more information about La Rochelle, see George’s blog post from June 2016.
