335 Main Street was completed about 1870.  It has been suggested that the foundation was begun 10 years earlier but completion was postponed because of the Civil War.  Possibly due to this, the shape and layout of the house looks back to American Empire styles, but the construction techniques and elements such as the original windows are more Victorian.  Until 1985 the house was without central heat or indoor plumbing.  Used by Madeline Goodwin Noyes as her summer home, she called the house “The Maples.”  When she passed in 1985, a builder bought the house put in central heat, insulation, indoor plumbing and separate 200 amp electrical services for the house and the barn.
