Get Directions

After retiring as Secretary of War in 1795, Henry Knox and his family moved to modern-day Thomaston, Maine, on land his wife Lucy had inherited and into the home they built the year prior named Montpelier. Henry and Lucy lived on the estate until his death in 1806 and her death in 1824. The estate stayed in the family until 1871 when the home was demolished to make room for a local railroad line. Today, visitors can see a 1929 re-creation of the house and learn more about Henry and Lucy Knox in the Knox Museum on the site.
