Built in 1866 by the Mark T. Wentworth family and restored in 2002
Jean and Reed Holmes, this wooden house was brought from Maine, USA on
the sailing vessel, the Nellie Chapin, along with 35 families and their
wooden houses. They established the American Colony in Jaffa. In the
1890's a stone addition doubled the house to
its present size.
