It was sold at the death of the Prentiss family and soon became a hospital for people with "nervous conditions" run by Maurice Gay, it had 17 rooms and shock treatment. It was sold to James G. Utterback, a Brewer car dealer and renamed the Utterback Hospital.
The building today is an apartment building with 13 apartments, and 2 apartments in the Carriage House. There are still traces of the "hospitals" in some rooms, the grounds are in good shape and one of the two copper beech trees in Maine (that I know of) is on the property.
Just a couple of weeks ago a female Eagle fell from a nest in a pine tree on the property and has been treated for toxins and release, two Eaglets are still in rehabilitation, the male Eagle fell from his perch and was electrocuted by landing on a live wire.
