The Captain Hadley House in Marion at the corner of Route 6 and Front Street has now been preserved forever, thanks to the Sippican Historical Society. The initiative to save historic properties has been a long-term goal for the Sippican Historical Society. Some past properties that were preserved (and renovated) by the Society include the Marion Post Office, the Sippican Historical Society building, the former Browne’s Drug Store (now Dean Ross) and the Band Stand.
A sale of the Captain Hadley House occurred on March 18th, 2016, wherein Sky Development Ltd. (owned by Mike and Kate Sudofsky) purchased the Captain Hadley House with deed restrictions placed in the deed and paid for by the SHS Preservation Fund and the Croll Foundation. The deed restrictions require any owner of the Captain Hadley House to preserve the exterior of the CHH building without changes or alterations. In addition, the building can never be moved, and if it is destroyed by fire or by other means, the owner and any future owner is required to rebuild the building in the same architectural style.
