Opening as a gallery in 2000, the space has been a part of the Port Clyde, ME community since the late 1800s.  The house was first built as the village inn, where locals like N.C. Wyeth would come for lunch. Through the years it has been home to many local fishermen and sits on the fisherman's cove, a block from the harbor.   

The space was most recently renovated to maintain the architectural integrity of the historic area by former-owners Paige Rense, editor-in-chief of Architectural Digest and artist Kenneth Noland.
