This home located in central Portsmouth, NH was exquisite. We are SO GLAD that we joined the Historic House Society, which is really reasonable and one gets to visit lots of Historic homes for FREE! Our guide was very friendly and open to all sorts of questions with excellent and thoughtful answers. Learning about Colonial times and the growing pains when America's surge for Independence from England was supported by only 1/3 of the people, was very eye-opening..and showed how political ideas are sometimes not everyone's cup of tea...and yet, they definitely affect the taste! The Sea Embargo in President Jeffersen's time affecting the coastal seaports in New England was maneuvered masterfully by Gov. Langdon and his ship building and sea merchant friends and townsfolk. There was an Photographic Art Exhibit also at the House of "The White Churches of New England"..highlighting architectural features in one of the grand rooms. Challenge yourself to learn about America from Americans..go see the Historic Houses, the houses themselves tell the story best of all!
