Ahab? Arrrgh! Here thar lived a real whaling captain, one John Dunham by name, master of the William A. Grozier, whose leg was bitten off by a shark in the West Indies after he’d fallen overboard from a dory. Captain Dunham did not even know what had happened until he’d clambered back into the boat. The house remained in the hands of the Dunham family until 2008, when Bradley Horner bought it. The transformation since then — including the reopening of the front porch — has been remarkable.
