"After John C. Harmon [John Cummins Harmon (1827-1894)] had sold [his house at what is now 246 Main Street] he built [c. 1860] another, which is now the property of Miss Grace M. Simmons, but with many additions and changes." - “Traditions and Records of Southwest Harbor and Somesville, Mount Desert Island, Maine” by Mrs. Seth S. Thornton, p. 144 – 1938
