210 East Water Street
Daniel Gould Marsh, the son of a prominent Rhode Island shipping family, purchased the property of the Marsh House for a residence in 1795. He had moved to the area, married a local girl, and established several businesses related to the shipping industry. He was the brother of Jonathan Marsh, who lived in the Palmer-Marsh House in Bath.
The brothers engaged in a variety of enterprises involving naval stores, lumber, grain, and shipping. Federal troops used this house and the neighboring Myers House as offices and quarters during the War Between the States. During the Civil War, when Yankee gunboats shelled the town, a cannonball passed into the house. The cannonball seen today was "placed" in the wall after the War to symbolize local defiance of occupation and reconstruction. This home was once known as the Telfair House. It remained in the Marsh family until 1942.
