Eliot’s connection with Mount Desert Island in Maine began in the summer of 1871. Eliot and his sons, Charles and Samuel, frequently took sailing trips along the Maine coast to Southwest Harbor from Boston. Sharing a love of nature and walking the trails of Mount Desert with his wife Grace, Eliot built a summer house in Northeast Harbor in 1881. Eliot, his wife, and family spent many summers in Maine until his death in 1926.
