Chapman Cottage is named for Fannie Chapman, who built the home as a summer cottage in 1899.
She was born to Judge Henry Chapman and Nancy Shunk of Doylestown Pennsylvania in 1846.
Fannie and her sisters, Mary Mercer and Elizabeth Lawrence, vacationed here in York. Mercer Mansion,
known today as the Harbor Crest Inn is located next door to Chapman Cottage. Fannie vacationed here
six to eight weeks during the summer, after which she would board a steamer and with her sisters and
travel to Europe. Fannie enjoyed the social life of Boston and Washington DC. She and Elizabeth were
frequently in the company of the best known writers, poets and legislators of the time. Henry Adams
used the two sisters as models for the characters in Democracy.
