Hackmatack Playhouse was founded in 1972 by S. Carleton Guptill. He envisioned a summer stock theatre that would showcase the talents of professional and developing thespians from the regional area.
Many theatre goers have called Hackmatack one of New England's most charming and quaint summer theatres. Some have even said that summer in Maine is not summer without a trip to Hackmatack. Much of the allure of this playhouse is its scenic location and historical presence.
Hackmatack Playhouse is located on the Guptill family farmstead. The property was purchased by the first Guptill (then Gubtail) to make the long trip to "New England" from native British Isles in the mid 1600's. Thomas Guptill built the first home, a log house which sat in the far left of the present day field overlooking the irrigation pond. According to family legend, this home was burnt down by Indians during one of the many raids on the Salmon Falls river region. The present day farmhouse was constructed between the years of 1716-2005 to appease the needs of an ever-changing diverse and dynamic Guptill family. When it was first constructed, the house was a large cape sitting endwise to the road. It was occupied at one point by two Guptill brothers. The younger brother decided that he would like to have a modern two story cape. His older brother in typical conservative fashion said "the house is plenty good enough the way it is". The younger brother replied, "My half is coming off". He then proceeded to saw his half off and tear it down. He built his family a two story cape on the end of the original house, parallel to the road, giving the house its shape. Minor reconstructions have taken place since then to create a more modern and functional house for the present day Guptills.
