10. Fessenden House

Fessenden House serves as the home of our Head of School Erin Mayo, husband Peter Gurnis, daughter Maeve, and son Gunnar.  The home is often open to students, faculty, and alumni for social gatherings.
Named for the Rev. William Fessenden, founder of Fryeburg Academy and its headmaster from 1800-1801.
The house was purchased by Mrs. Harvey Gibson and her daughter, Whitney, in 1955 and donated to the Academy to be the Headmaster’s home and named Fessenden House.
