Abstract

This thesis examines three homesteads in the small inland farming community of Sebago, Maine. The homesteads are analyzed in terms of architecture and landscape, along with documentary sources such as census returns. Set against the backdrop of the history of the town, and northern rural New England in general, the story of these three houses offers insights into the soacial history of Sebago during this period.
