Freeze House [1896-1904]

Descriptive Object

Photograph of what is described as the Freeze House in Argyle (ME) with family (and horse) in front. The exact location is not clear, but a comment on the back of a duplicate seems to suggest that the house in the back is the John Dow house. The lot to the north of John Dow's lot was in fact owned by William W. Freeze (1841-1913), a Civil War veteran and lumberman, so the photo may depict his house (although in that case the sunlight in the photo as indicated by the shadow of the chimneys seems to come too far from the north). According to the label on the back, the picture was taken by C. F. Rhodes.
