BAR HARBOR, Maine (AP) — A historic mansion overlooking the ocean in Bar Harbor has a new owner.
The 13,000-square-foot former home of the Maine Seacoast Mission has been purchased for $4.75 million by the Bar Harbor Historical Society.
The mansion had been headquarters of the Maine Seacoast Mission since 1972. WABI-TV reports it was a gift from an heir to the Campbell Soup Co.
The historical society’s board raised $2 million to help purchase the La Rochelle mansion, and plans to move in later this year.
