Thom Hindle Gallery

The Keefe House was built in 1825 for Asa Tufts, owner of Tufts Apothecary. In 1847, his son Charles took over the shop as Asa became involved in banking and insurance until his death in 1884. The house was purchased in 1917 by F. Clyde Keefe, a local attorney and twice mayor from 1934-35 and again from 1942-47. The home remained in the Keefe family for three generations.
