Survey number HABS ME-170
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-62).
Building/structure dates: 1850 initial construction
Significance: Built around 1850 by Edwin Hadlock to supplant a store begun in 1808 by his father Samuel, the building remained a ships store until the 1890s when it became the Isleford Market. In 1918 Sawtelle purchased the building to house the Isleford Historical Collection. The name Blue Duck originated around 1918 when Sawtelle painted several duck decoys to match the buildings trim and mounted one on the north gable.
