Charlotte’s Web Farm on Market for First Time in 30 Years
Yankee Magazine reports that E.B. White’s 44-acre saltwater farm on the Maine coast has been listed for $3.7 million by Martha Dischinger at Downeast Properties. E.B. and Katharine White bought the farm, which sits on a small inlet off Blue Hill Bay, in 1933. The couple was a literary tandem: he, the author of classics such as Stuart Little and Charlotte’s Web; she, an editor at The New Yorker. Many of the scenes and props from Charlotte’s Web can be found on the farm, which has had one owner since E.B.’s death in 1985.
