Blaine House, is the official residence of the Governor of Maine and his or her family. The Executive Mansion was officially declared the residence of the Governor in 1919 with the name "The Blaine House. " It is located in Augusta, Maine, across the street from the Maine State House. The Blaine House was donated to the State of Maine for a Governor's residence by Harriet Blaine Beale in 1919. The house dates back to 1833 and was built by James Hall, a retired ship's captain. James G. Blaine, then the Speaker of the Maine House of Representatives, purchased it in 1862 as a present for his wife, the former Harriet Stanwood, daughter of a prominent Augusta family. During World War I it was used by Maine's Committee for Public Safety. It was presented to the State by Blaine's youngest daughter, Mrs. Harriet Blaine Beale, and established by the Legislature of 1919 as the official residence of the Governor of Maine. It was remodeled prior to the first governor taking residence in 1921. Carl E. Miliken was the first governor to occupy the home. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964."
