Marvin Windows Bring Historical Accuracy to Iconic Turrets Building in Maine

Posted: November 18, 2014

Designed and built in 1895 as a massive summer cottage for John Emery, an American stage, film, radio and television actor, the Turrets Building at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine was owned by the Emery family for nearly 65 years, before it passed through several hands. When the college purchased Turrets in 1973, it embarked on a series of renovations to restore the original condition of the building. Today, the Turrets is one of the most important examples of cottage-era architecture in Maine that is still open to the public.
