The Fogg Homestead is a refurbished 1821 Colonial which was
owned by the Fogg family, founders and benefactors of Eliot¹s public library. The Foggs donated the land for the library, gave it an endowment, and bequeathed their homestead to the library as well.
Among the items of interest are The Fogg Collection, which contains about 1000 volumes. The books cover a variety of topics, including New England history, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, foreign countries, genealogies, collected papers, state historical collections, state histories, and town histories. Other items of interest include Dr. Fogg¹s 19th Century Medical Tools, a working pedal organ, framed minutes from the Eliot Library Association, written by Sarah Farmer, founder of Green Acre Baha i School, businesswoman, and leader of first world Peace movement, Mrs. Fogg¹s wedding slippers, old-fashioned essentials such as a crank butter churn, bed warmer, and ice box, a model of the clipper ship Nightingale, built in Eliot, which ferried renowned Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind (The Swedish Nightingale) to the U.S.
The Fogg Homestead was nearly lost to fire in 2000, but thanks to dedicated volunteers was restored and refurbished
