It began with a dream.
After selling their Pepsi-Cola bottling plant in Montana in 1968, then working for two years in the Peace Corps in Ghana, Robert and Rebecca Jorgensen were searching for a new life venture.
Family connections in Wells enticed them to this southern Maine coastal community. After 30 years of interest in antiques, and wishing to embark on a new career, they purchased the historic 1685 Mill House property and began living out their dream of dealing in fine period antiques.
And so, in 1971, R. Jorgensen Antiques was established in Wells, Maine.
