The author of Charlotte's Web and Stuart Little lived in North Brooklin, Maine where he worked in the boathouse on his property: he wrote the first draft of Charlotte's Web in here in 1950. Here's how the New York Times described it:
"He does most of his writing at the water's edge in an old boathouse, sitting in Spartan solitude on a wooden bench. Writing has never come easy, and it took him years to realize that spikes were sticking in his back. Mr. White has now built himself a broader bench and screened in the boathouse and chased off the foxes that burrowed into the ground below."
The exterior of the boathouse measures 10ft by 15ft.
