    Colburn House gallery 5/7/19 - Kennebec Journal photo by Joseph Owen | of | Share this photo

    The Maj. Reuben Colburn House, seen here May 6, once was approached chiefly from the Kennebec River. Now it stands alongside Pittston’s Arnold Road, which was the original Route 27 until the state widened and straightened the highway several decades ago, moving it slightly east of the house. The 2.5-story section of the home was built in 1765. The ell, at right, appeared much later.

    The carriage house at the Colburn House State Historic Site, seen May 6 in the foreground at right, needs repair, like the main house, at left. The barn in the background at right is in better shape. It hosts occasional meetings of the Arnold Expedition Historical Society and other events.

    An exhibit in the Maj. Reuben Colburn House in Pittston commemorates midwife Martha Ballard (1735-1812), who knew the Colburn family well and whose diary of nearly three decades provides detailed descriptions of everyday life in New England in the early years of American independence.
