Working on my web directory job, I frequently come across bed and breakfasts, or even museum buildings, whose website brags about the building being more than a half-century old, and I think, what's the big deal about that? I was out of high school and working for a paper company by then. Most of the people I know live in houses that were built long before 1971. That's practically a new house. Most of the houses in Millinocket were built more than a century ago and, for that matter, most of the houses in what is known as the New Development were built in the 1960s. The mill owners chose the site for the Great Northern Paper Mill in the late 1800s, and it was the company itself that built most of the buildings in the old part of town, which is where I live. There was no town here before the mill. There were only a couple of farms. The people who were involved in the construction of the mill buildings were housed in an area now known as Shack Hill, but none of these shacks still exist. Construction of what is now the old section of town began in the early 1900s, beginning with the commercial buildings and a few boarding houses, which still exist, on Penobscot Avenue, which serves as Millinocket's main street. The second street built was Katahdin Avenue, where I live. I have an old postcard that shows early Katahdin Avenue before it was paved. The photo on the card shows a few other buildings that are under construction, but the only buildings that appear to have been completed were my house (which was probably a boarding house then) and the house across the street from me, which was clearly a boarding house. My house was built in 1910. As it was built before there was a municipal government here, the town does not have a blueprint or a floorplan of my house. A few years ago, our code enforcement officer said that he was going to have to go through the house in order to complete a record of the building for the town office. I told him he'd need a warrant, which he never produced, the advantage being that I can do whatever I want to do on the inside of the house, or even in the back of the house, without a permit. So, my house was built in 1910, which makes it about 111 years old. How old is your house?
