Known as the Godfrey-Patten House, this c.1850 home located in the Cherryfield Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The nomination mentions the Greek Revival form, pediment and pilasters, with Italianate porch, brackets and bay window. This combination of styles was common in new construction in the mid-19th C., especially in New England.

Otis Smith Godfrey (1827-1883) a blacksmith and shipsmith, later a merchant and lumberman, was likely the original owner. He lived here with his wife Susan, and young children, Lester, Martha, Jesse, May, Nathan.  By the 1870’s, the home was purchased by Francis Warren Patten (1833-1916) who lived here with his wife Martha, and young sons, Charles, Frank and William.  Both Frank and his father were leather tanners and shoemakers. The eldest Frank built a large business that was handed down to his son. The shop  on Main Street in Cherryfield is known as the Patten Building and is listed individually on the NRHP.

The house has a pedimented gable end, as well as bracketed cornices, an ornate entrance porch and a side bay window.
