The Eastman Lord House was built in 1818 in the Federal style. It was the home of William Kimball and Rhoda (Messer) Eastman. Mr. Eastman made his fortune through the establishment of several businesses in Conway Village, including a tannery, paper and wool carding mills.

In 1879, George A. Heath bought the house with his first wife Elzabeth (Harriman) and later his second wife, Lucinda (Meader), owned the house until 1900. George Heath’s heirs then sold the property to A.C. Kennett (yes, that Kennett). Two weeks later, he sold it to Mary E. (Daniels) Lord.

On January 20, 1962, the Lord’s son, Robert Raymond “Bowser” Lord gave the house to the Conway Historical Society. He lived on in the caretaker’s wing until his passing in 1967. The house was used as a residence for almost 150 years by only three families.

The Eastman Lord House and Museum are currently closed for tours, but we are working on getting the house re-opened to the public!
