Behind the main house (1938) at 3 Allerton Street is a small shed that has served for years as an artist’s studio – now used in summers by the painter Bert Yarborough, a faculty member at the Fine Arts Work Center and at Colby-Sawyer College; formerly by the sculptor Paul Bowen. “It is a great little space,” Yarborough said. “But my best studio is Hatches Harbor out at the end of Herring Cove beach!”
Yarborough was married to Cynthia Huntington, who wrote The Salt House about their experiences in the dune shack Euphoria.
