The architectural firm of Arthur Rotch and George Thomas Tilden was, for the period of their association from 1880 to 1894, one of the most active in New England. Both men studied architecture in Boston area schools and at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, with Rotch employed as a draftsman in Tilden's office prior to forming their partnership. During the decade 1882 to 1892, the firm obtained no fewer than thirty commissions in Maine, the vast majority of them being summer cottages in Bar Harbor. - NRHP
