Jonathan Fisher (1768-1847) was the first settled Congregational minister of the small village of Blue Hill. Fisher was also an artist, farmer, scientist, mathematician, surveyor, and writer of prose and poetry.
Today, at the charming homestead he designed in 1814 for his growing family, you may see the life’s work of this "Versatile Yankee." The house contains remarkable survivals from the Fisher era.
