Timeline History of the House
The Captain Enoch Remick House was built in 1808 in a Federal Architectural style, but later additions resulted in Greek Revival and Italianate influences. It was passed down through six generations of the Remick family, each of which contributed greatly to local history and lore. Members of the Remick family occupied the house from 1808–1993, the year Dr. Edwin C. Remick passed away. 

The property on which the house stands was purchased by Enoch Remick, a shipwright from Newmarket, NH.

Enoch’s fourth son, John, also a shipwright and joiner, built the house.

Captain Enoch Remick, the youngest child of John Remick, moved into the house and opened an inn. The house also served as a stop- and change-over station for the Center Harbor–Conway stagecoach route. Captain Enoch Remick was the first sheriff of Carroll County.

The house was sold to Nathaniel Hubbard, who married Sarah Remick, the daughter of Captain Enoch Remick, in 1868. Nathanial was one of the wealthiest men in Tamworth, and their farm was one of the most prosperous.

Upon Sarah’s death, her real estate was split between her three nephews because she had no children of her own. One nephew, Dr. Edwin Remick, bought out his siblings’ inheritance and moved into the house with his wife, Emily, and baby boy, Edwin C. Remick and opened a medical office out of the home.
