The old Trickey homestead located at 649 Saco St., shown in the photo at left, was one of the oldest houses in Westbrook.

In 1757, Eleanor Trickey, widow of Zebulon Trickey, deeded the 83-acre farm and buildings to her sons, David and Zebulon Trickey. The property remained in the Trickey family up until 1906.

Since then, it has passed through several owners, including the Chick family. The last occupant of the house, Alphonse Boivin, passed away in 1999. The house was then sold, dismantled and moved to Falmouth.

The Victoria Heights development now occupies the site where the house stood and the Hamlet sits on land that was once part of the Trickey farm.
