Who knew adding a man cave in Kennebunk’s landmark Taylor-Barry House would earn rave reviews from [the preservation group] Historic New England?
Finished by master carpenter Thomas Eaton in 1804, the house at 22 Summer Street was originally designed for William Taylor before the Barry family, overlords from the China Trade, purchased it in 1841 and lived here 130 years.
