Historic Interest

Built in 1878 by Col. William F. Holland, a banker from Savannah, Georgia. The design is what is commonly known as Stick Style Victorian. Having survived the Great Fire of 1947 thanks to a fortuitous change in the winds, the Primrose Inn remains one of the last grand residences of the 19th Century in Bar Harbor.
