Is there a mystery here?

One's imagination could run wild thinking about what took place within this house sometime in the past.  Maybe it was nothing, but maybe it was actually something.

We've never lived in the small town of Washington located in Knox County between Rockland and Augusta, so we can't tell you what went on there, or why there is a jail cell on the second floor of this old farmhouse on Route 220 just past Mason's Corner and the center of town.

Customers coming and going at the Washinton General store just across the street may be able to inform a visitor of anything noteworthy that may have gone on there in the past. Maybe not.

But there is what resembles a jail cell in the house. Was it there to protect valuables?  Did the house once house a member of law enforcement at one time?  Or, is its story something right out of a Dean Koontz novel?

Nevertheless, this once very beautiful and now very overgrown 1860's vintage American farmhouse at 10 Waldoboro Road is for sale and listed at $169,900 on Zillow by Cates Real Estate. It contains 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms over 1,165 square feet and sits on six acres of land.

Attached to the house is a small barn complete with pens, and one can only imagine the hard-working family that once lived here and the animals that they tended to. There is certainly history here in this home, one can tell by the wallpaper, the colorful rugs on the floor, and of course the room with iron bars for a door.
