      Jottings on the Street, No. 4
      ...
      The Old St Andrews Coffee House

      In the month of December, and the year 1783, stood away off in Penobscot, State of Maine, an Inn. A Mr Andrew Martin surveyed this Penobscot Tavern, and a rising desire took possession of Martin?s mind to become possessor of what same Penobscot House. It was a convenient little Hotel and our speculating Andrews of 95 years ago, thought how good it would be to have that same Penobscot House standing in St Andrews.

      St Andrews, at that time, was sparse in its number of building sand its population and the addition of the Penobscoter to the edifices would be an acquisition too valuable to be disregarded; consequently, a bargain was effected, and John Macphail was employed to raze to its foundation the Penobscot Hotel, remove, and raise it in St Andrews.

      Thus reads the account:
      Dec. 1783. Andrew Martin to John Macphail,
      Estimate of the value of the St. Andrews Coffee House, with the expense of removing it to St Andrews,
      To the House taken down at Penobscot (30 pounds), To Freight from there to SA, 13 pounds, 10 shillings; To Taking down 3,000 bricks, 6 pounds; To freight of do. [sic] 2 pounds, 10 shillings; To 1,000 feet seasons Boards, 2 pounds, 10 shillings; to Freight of do. [sic] 1 pound, 10 shillings; To 4 window frames, cases and sashes glazed, 4 pounds; to 1 pannel [sic] door, 1 pound. [total 61 pounds]
      To be settled (inside). On the back it reads House Account settled.

      Now, the question arises why did Andrew Martin take such an interest in the Penobscot Hotel more than in any other, for there were several others in different parts of the State of Maine, far more attractive and convenient? For this very reason It was called the St Andrews Coffee House; and Mr Martin loved St Andrews, and the very name of the Hotel attracted him; and, without changing its name, he changed its location; to him no other name sounded so alluring; he yielded to its influence, and hence the curious can now walk down towards the water, part Mr. Clark?s bakery and store (the old Getty stand) and a gentle rap, or a loud know, at Sandy Donald?s residence, will have the door opened for you, and you can walk in, into the Old St. Andrews Coffee House. It is in good condition to this very day the rooms are cozy-looking low ceilings. The kind lady-occupant told the writer a few days ago, that there is not a warmer house in the town; and her veracity is unquestionable.

      Almost 100 years have passed away, and there stands the Old Penobscot Hotel, (St Andrews Coffee House) in its primitive stability. What changes, since John Macphail rendered his account of sixty one pounds to Andrew Martin for removing the now Andy Donald tenement from Penobscot! We have the House, the circumstances, the changes, all interesting as they are, to the mild, serious reflection of meditative minds until next week, when other Jottings will demand new attention.

      The St Andrews Coffee House

      Several of the first framed houses built at St Andrews, it is said, were taken down at Castine Maine, and the frames and materials brought here and rebuilt. One of those now remaining is perhaps deserving of special mention. That dwelling sits on the westerly side of William Street near the harbor front, is owned by the heirs of the late Donald Clark and is occupied by Mrs Alex Donald. Andrew Martin owned it at the time of its being placed in its present location, and kept it as an Inn or boarding house. It was called the St Andrews Coffee House. Mr Martin purchased the building at Castine from John Macphail. The original bill for the materials presented by Macphail to Martin is said to be still extant, and the followins is a true copy thereof:-
      ...
    • MARTIN: John Martin (Dr.) born c1748 in North Carolina, of Irish descent, d. 1832: first settled in Cornwallis, NS: married Abigail Dennison born c1750, d. 1829, d/o David Sharman Dennison of Horton, NS: came to NB after 1788 and settled at Penobsquis in Cardwell Parish, Kings County:
