Built in 1815 & listed on the National Register in 1992. 
Located near the junction of Cape Road and Route 302.

The Watkins House and Cabins shows a pattern common to rural Maine history—namely, the change of land-use over time from agriculture to small-scale industry to tourism.  Sumner Clark & Abbie L. (Mussey) Watkins moved into the house in the 1870s. Sumner C. Watkins established a carriage & blacksmith shop here in 1877. The business ceased upon the death of Sumner in 1907. Cabins were later built on the property and rented out to tourists by their only son, Charles ("Charley") S. Watkins. Charley Watkins never married & upon his death, the property went to his niece, Alice Nute. The farmhouse and 13.5 acres of land are now protected by the Loon Echo Land Trust.
