Commercial – Richmond, ME



The historic CHTJ Southard House centrally located on Main Street offers potential as a single-family home or for investors and developers to convert the expansive space into offices, apartments, or condos, and has B&B potential with ample parking space. The carriage house has the opportunity to be converted to office, residential, storage space, or a multi-vehicle garage. Shipping magnate TJ Southard purchased the original small house (built ca. 1870), created the mansion and gifted it to his son as a wedding present in 1888. The property is rich with history and has undergone several phases of restoration. The current owners converted the mansion into the Southard House Museum in 1990. One of the primary features of the museum that remains intact is the observation room located at the top level of the turret which offers stunning views of the Maine Kennebec Bridge, Swan Island, the Kennebec River and downtown Main Street. The Southard House offers over 7500 square feet of finished living space, restored tin ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors throughout, and original hand painted artwork along the walls of the main gallery. Beloved by its community, the Southard House offers an abundance of opportunities for the next proud owner of this Richmond landmark.
