The Henry Boody House also known as the Boody-Johnson House, is an historic house at 256 Maine Street in Brunswick, Maine, United States. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on 1975.[1] The house was built in 1849 for Henry Hill Boody, Professor of Rhetoric and Oratory at Bowdoin College in Brunswick from 1845-1854. It cost $6,000 to build the house and purchase the land. Boody sold the property in 1870. It was purchased by two owners for short periods before being purchased by Bowdoin Professor Henry Johnson in 1877. When Johnson died, the property passed to his oldest daughter, Helen Johnson Chase, who was married to Bowdoin Professor Stanley P. Chase.[2] The property is now owned by Bowdoin College.[3]
