John Thomas Driscoll (d. 1941), chief of police, lunch counter owner

c. 1850 - Chief John T. Driscoll House - 69 Main Street

On the c. 1865 and 1872 maps of South Berwick this house may have been occupied by a Mrs. Chadbourne. Descendants of John Thomas Driscoll (d. 1941) say this was the home of the Driscoll family. Driscoll was the South Berwick chief of police and in the 1910s and 1920s owned a drug store and lunch counter in the John Frost Store at Main and Paul Streets. Driscoll's aunt, Hannah Driscoll, may have been a housekeeper in family of author Sarah Orne Jewett and mentioned in Jewett's 1909 will.
